TRENTON, N.J. (AP) The popular social networking Web site Facebook has agreed to test replacing its own link for reporting abuse with a bigger one developed by the New Jersey Attorney General's Office.
Under the agreement announced Wednesday, Facebook will display a "Report Abuse!" icon on a small fraction of its pages that display videos instead of its own link for reporting objectionable material.
Users that find offensive material may click on the icon to receive safety tips, a place to report the user to Facebook and the option to block the offender.
The test will involve at least 1.5 million randomly-selected page impressions over the next six months. One of the world's most popular Web sites, Facebook served 3.65 billion ad views in the U.S. in June, according to Web measurement firm comScore Inc.
