It just got easier for families and educators to maneuver the digital world responsibly.  Verizon is pleased to support a new interactive website connecting families and educators with instant online safety resources – The Family Online Safety Institute’s Platform for Good

Platform for Good is an online repository for best in class online safety tips, tools and expert advice. The site focuses on the positive power of the Internet, and empowers families to connect, share, and do good online.   Resources include engaging and informative blogs, videos, inspiring social media content, polls, quizzes and more.
