Students at Scotts Valley High School are using Facebook for more than posting prom photos and status updates — they’ve created a page for compliments.
That’s right. They’re turning the social media space into a positive platform through a Facebook page called Scotts Valley Compliments.
The page just recently launched earlier this month and already has more than 300 followers.
It’s all positive on this page, and they can remain anonymous.
These compliment forums have gained popularity recently. According to NBC News, it all began in Canada in September 2012 “as an antidote to cyber-bullying and a way to spread joy across campus.”
Since then it has spread to many schools across the U.S., including locally.
In Scotts Valley, here’s a look at a few of the joyful posts:
Taylor Thornley is an amazingly compassionate, intelligent, funny and precious to everyone she helps. If only she could see the beauty that we all see in her :)
Kara Dorsey is an amazing person. She is beautiful and a great person. She is so talented and my life is better for knowing her. I wish her all the happiness in the world.
Tyler Lex Nickel is a beautiful person and I'm so proud to be his friend.
