Understanding how Yubo is addressing cyberbullying
Tackling cyberbullying can be challenging, and this is why parties
interested in addressing the dangerous behavior should work together.
November 2022 has seen Yubo—a live social discovery platform—share
valuable anti-cyberbullying information to users who use the app. The
social discovery app shared various helpful educational resources that
can help young people get anti-bullying help.
The social media platform also combines the latest state-of-the-art
tech tools and human strategies to create a safe and secure
environment. Consequently, perpetrators of bullying are not welcome on
the live social discovery site.
Unlike other social media sites, Gen Z’s favorite live social discovery
app—Yubo—boasts 100% user age verification. The platform ensures
everyone is who they say they are. Moreover, the site verifies all its
user’s ages without sharing personal identification documents such as
government-issued IDs, passports, driving licenses, and more.
Some words are muted on the live social discovery app. The Muted Words
functionality has been around since 2021, and it allows users to use an
intuitive and user-friendly tool to block a designated list of words or
phrases. Consequently, users don’t have to come across words they find
offensive and harmful.
