Ask.fm Makes Anti-Bullying Changes
Social networking site Ask.fm has announced changes to make its environment safer in the wake of some high-profile online bullying cases.
Bosses said all reports would be viewed within 24 hours, the report button would be made more visible and include harassment and bullying as a category.
Some of the alterations will go live next month.
Dave Smith, father of 14-year-old Hannah Smith, who is believed to have killed herself after being bullied on the site, welcomed the changes.
He said: "I think it is too late, but it's not too little.
"They are actually taking a step forward and they are making things safer for children on the internet."
