Sticker in Sozialen Medien - Spaß oder unterschätzte Gefahr?

Nazi symbols and pornography - children share criminal content online all the time. Why do they do that? And how should parents and educators react? That is what the scout event "Stickers in Social Media - Fun or Underestimated Danger?" as part of the Digitalen Woche Kiel [Digital Week Kiel], the digital festival in the north of Germany, is all about. Kira Thiel from the HBI will be there as an expert, on Thursday, 10 September 2020, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., registration is required.

Sending so-called stickers via social media is very popular for children. These little pictures are reminiscent of classic stickers and usually show animals, little hearts or funny memes. The funnier, the cooler, the crazier - the better!
But often they also share violent, racist or (child) pornographic images. These pictures are not only hurtful and frightening - they can even be illegal! Their further distribution, already their possession in some cases, is punishable by law! However, especially children and young people are often not aware of this.

Adults who learn about such content on their children's or students' smartphones should definitely act. In this scout event, parents and educational professionals will learn how they should react to this.
Speakers are
  • Kira Thiel, Junior Researcher, Leibniz Institute for Media Research │ Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI)
  • Mareike Häseker, freelance media educator
  • Henning Fietze, Director of "ElternMedienLotse", Offener Kanal Schleswig-Holstein
