An online tool that helps parents protect children from the dangers of the web has teamed up with an anti-bullying charity to gain an insight into cyberbullying.
Online Them is to support British charity BulliesOut in developing a concrete understanding of cyberbullying and finding ways to deal with it more effectively.
According to the charity, cyberbullying is a concept with very little research, so it’ll collaborate with OnlineThem and conduct comprehensive research to gain a better insight into the area.
Launched in November by tech company HelloSoda, OnlineThem uses cutting-edge data analysis techniques and sophisticated algorithms to generate risk reports about children’s online interactions.
Parents are able to use the tool to receive monthly reports detailing unusual behaviour, language or interaction on their child’s social media accounts. As well as this, real-time alerts are generated if high-risk warning signs are detected.
