Jersey Shore's Vinny Teams With Facebook and MTV to Take a Stand Against Bullying
Building on their joint effort with GLAAD to remove anti-gay and hateful comments posted to a memorial page dedicated to those lost to anti-gay bullying, Facebook has announced a new initiative to address cyber-bullying issues faced by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.
Facebook's "Network of Support" will help educate LGBT teens and the wider community on how to cope with any harassment they encounter online, and ways to help keep the internet safe for everyone.

GLAAD is proud to partner with Facebook and other LGBT organizations on this new initiative, and applauds MTV and Vinny Guadagnino's efforts to support it.
