take action

The owners of Ask.fm spoke out with condolences for the family of 14-year-old Hannah Smith, who hanged herself after being exposed to horrific abuse on their site. But what we need is meaningful action. They must drastically increase their moderation on Ask.fm.

The website, which allows children as young as 13 (but with no age verification) to post anonymously has come under fire for fostering an environment where kids can engage in horrific abuse and bullying without any meaningful repercussions. Hannah Smith is just the most recent example of a suicide due to the effects of bulling, and as the main outlet for much of this abuse, Ask.fm has a responsibility to do something about it.

Please sign this petition calling on the owners of Ask.fm to triple their moderation, and include harsh punishment such as IP blocking for anyone who posts hateful or abusive messages.
