Vodafone Tackles Text Bullying

Vodafone New Zealand is raising awareness of text bullying with a print advertising campaign aimed at teenagers and parents, in partnership with NetSafe, the Police, and Telecom. Three print advertisements and posters have appeared in parenting magazines and as posters around schools, showing unhappy teenagers whose faces appear as sad emoticons.
