Pilot Program Against Cyberbullying to Begin



    The Power of a Positive Attitude

    A pilot program to help prevent cyberbullying on Facebook is getting underway in Maryland.

    Attorney General Doug Gansler is scheduled to help kick off the initiative on Friday in Annapolis.

    Educators from nearly every jurisdiction in Maryland are scheduled to attend. Gansler's office says the session is being led by one of Facebook's top public policy and community engagement experts.

    The initiative will give educators a direct link to Facebook personnel to help address online bullying.
