Middle school and high school can be an intimidating time for many kids, especially when bullying is added to the equation.

Some students in Perry County are now using Facebook to fight bullying.

It started when students in seperate grade levels and at seperate schools bonded over one idea.

A group of students known as "Perry County Beasts" decided to use a modern way to fight the age-old problem of bullying.

The group's Facebook page is causing both students and parents to hop on the anti-bullying bandwagon.

Their bullying battle doesn't stop at Facebook, the group also has an additional website.

The website even has a section where viewers can share their experiences with bullying, giving them an outlet that many may not have had.

The group says there's no need to be afraid of bullies, especially when you have hundreds of friends behind you.
