Tumblr Launches Anti-bullying Campaign

With the support of Vice President Joe Biden, actress Elizabeth Banks and singer Jordin Sparks, the blogging site Tumblr launched an anti-bullying campaign today under the hashtag #PostItForward. “Bullying, coming out, being depressed: for our users, they’re really intertwined,” Tumblr’s Liba Rubenstein tells the AP. “We hope to change the conversation in society about the role online communities play in some of these issues.” She says the story of transgender teen Leelah Alcorn posting her suicide note on her Tumblr was one of many heartbreaking instances which motivated the company to act.
