Measuring the perceived risks of SMS in the youth culture

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 2-May-2007 10:01

A friend is running a survey to measure the perceived risks of SMS, mainly when it comes to underage users being harassed with bullying messages or other sexual content.


We are a small independant software company interested in the effects of bullying and harassment through text messaging on the youth culture.

The purpose of this survey is two fold - to find out how undesirable messaging is perceived in society and to understand if technology is able to help mitigate some of the issues we suspect are out there.

The questions in the first section will be shared with the general public in an aggregated summary format to help the New Zealand community understand how text harassment is affecting society. The remainder of the information including any personal information will not be shared with anyone and will be used to help us understand whether technology is an appropriate way to deal with this issue.


If you can help, please visit www.txtsurvey.co.nz and fill in the questions. It will only take a couple of your minutes! It would be better if you had kids of your own, to make it more focused.

You can do it even if you are not in New Zealand.
