What is Failbook?
Failbook is one of the humor sites on the Cheezburger Network. On this site, people can post screen shots of funny, embarrassing, or awkward Facebook happenings. On the screenshots, pictures and full names are blacked out or blurred so that a person's actual identity can't be discovered from the posts. Users can vote for posts by either hitting the Like or Dislike button. You can also submit funny Facebook posts you have come across.
Concerns for Parents
- Many of these posts are laugh-out-loud funny. However, you'll see the occasional swear word dropped, and almost all of the humor rides on either hinted at or openly sexual language.
- Some of the "funny" comments are pretty mean; you may laugh because you're outside of the situation, but if you were the person being cyberbullied, you wouldn't be laughing one bit.
How Can I Keep My Child Safe?
- The language and sexual innuendo contained in these posts makes this site one that kids and teens ought to avoid. Glance over the site for yourself and decide if you think it's appropriate for your family. If you think it's something you'd be better off without, block Failbook from your computer.
