Facebook has partnered with Digify Africa to host Internet safety training sessions for a thousand young South Africans in the next two months.

The Internet giant wants to help young people protect their information and image online, at a time when it is being scrutinised for not protecting its users' data during the Cambridge Analytica fiasco.

The world's largest social network has committed to training a thousand 13- to 18-year-olds at eight youth clubs and more than 50 high schools across the country, in face-to-face sessions. The lessons and resources will also be put online, so teachers not part of the selected schools can run the course. Read the full article on ITWeb Africa here.
