Prompted by some young tragedies as a result of cyberbullying Fuzion decided to take action to protect the vulnerable, by helping children, their parents, guardians and teachers to learn and understand how these powerful and very useful social media platforms work, and discover the risks and plan ahead so that these risks can be managed and minimised.


‘Safebook’ was born, in November 2012, in the form of a decisive PR campaign to draw attention to this problem faced by parents, teachers, mental health and youth and community liaison workers; engaging with them at their level of understanding.

Within 24 hours of “Safebook” going live on Facebook, the post was viewed by over 500,000 people worldwide.  From the initial social media activity a regional, national and international PR campaign, using traditional and social media commenced to ensure that the message reached as many people as possible.

Greg Canty, Co-owner of Fuzion and Social Media Strategist stated “We live and breathe Social Media for our work and it plays such a big role in communicating our own messages and our clients’ – but we realise that these tools can also be used for evil as well as good and we wanted to do our part to combat the growing epidemic of cyber bullying and the deadly damage it can cause.”
