A THIN LINE

A THIN LINE | Promote Digital Safety in an Online Environment | Scoop.it
A THIN LINE, MTV's sexting, cyberbullying, digital dating abuse campaign
Janice Scoville's insight:

"MTV's A Thin Line campaign was developed to empower you to identify, respond to, and stop the spread of digital abuse in your life and amongst your peers. The campaign is built on the understanding that there's a "thin line" between what may begin as a harmless joke and something that could end up having a serious impact on you or someone else. We know no generation has ever had to deal with this, so we want to partner with you to help figure it out. On-air, online and on your cell, we hope to spark a conversation and deliver information that helps you draw your own digital line."

 

This is a great source for teens to go for help, advice and informations. The design is not insulting to the teenagers intelligence or maturity.  A great place to have all their questions answered.
