Project

You Too!

We are working on ways to detect sensitive themes in the online discussions between teenagers on social networks, and to match them to similar experiences shared publicly by other teenagers. For example, imagine a thread between two teenagers on a social networking website; if the theme of their discussion involves "pressure and regret conditioned on sex," we can show them stories by other teenagers who have publicly talked about pressure and regret based on sex. We're trying to help teenagers in difficult situations, helping them to feel that they are not alone, and that there have been other teenagers in similar plights.
