Platform for Good Launch



Sept. 12, 2012


National Press Club, Washington, DC

The Family Online Safety Institute launched a new interactive website to help parents, teachers and teens connect, share and do good online. A Platform for Good features interactive experiences and resources that encourage conversation about how to safely and responsibly navigate our digital world; as well as blogs and stories that highlight ways technology can be used to advance social good. 

 A Platform for Good presents a brand new approach to digital citizenship built on ideas, research, and resources, and we are excited to partner with Facebook, Google, Microsoft, AT&T, National Cable & Telecommunications Association, Sprint, Symantec, Verizon, and Yahoo!
