Violence and cyber-bullying on Web 2.0

What can we do about the negative side effects of social networking sites and video platfoms?
From 15.00 o' clock until 19.00 o' clock
Niedersächsische Landesmedienanstalt
Altes Rathaus, Karmarschstraße 42, Hannover, Germany

The conference is based on the results of the study "Gewalt im Web 2.0", which was recently published in Germany and will discuss its results in the light of youth protection.

Young people themselves will report about their experiences with cyber-bullying and violence related to their use of Web 2.0 appliances. Furthermore, Friedemann Schindler from jugendschutz.net will speak about possible protective measures to prevent such assaults, which could be provided by the social platform providers themselves.

In the panel discussion, the providers of Web 2.0 appliances - f.e. schülerVZ/studiVZ, clipfish.de, wer-kennt-wen.de etc. - will discuss about their activities against violence and cyber-bullying on their platforms.
