The Glendale Unified School District will pay $40,500 to a company called Geo Listening to check out the public social media posts of 13,000 students at eight schools. It's all about cyber-bullying on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, and the safety of students. It was prompted by the suicide of a student last year.
