I received a press release from Disney's ABC Family. I realize this is a little off-topic, but as the father of 2 girls this campaign struck a cord with me. It seems like this is a topic we've had to deal with on our own boards recently too. Sounds like a good cause to me.

Seventeen magazine and ABC Family want you to Delete Digital Drama! Show your support to end cyberbullying by adding this Delete Digital Drama badge to your Facebook and Twitter profile pic today!

Thanks for posting this, Dave. I just saw the commercial for the movie on ABC Family. I'll be watching. I'm also going to pass this along to the technology teacher at our school.

Thanks for this post. I will be DVR-ing this. I despise any type of bullying. It breaks my heart.

Chance to meet Disney Channel Star Emily Osment as well as other ABC Family Talent.

As part of the promotion for ABC Family's Original Movie "Cyberbully", a live rally against "digital drama" will be held in Glendale, CA. Sounds like a good cause.
