What does the service include?


  • Children and young people can anonymously and with a low threshold report unpleasant situations they encounter on social media, games, or other online platforms in an easy-to-use app.

  • In the app, the pupil receives an assessment from SomeBuddy's experts and advice to solve the situation. SomeBuddy's aid includes a legal assessment, recommended action plan, advice on how to protect yourself online and psychosocial first aid.

  • Our service for schools also includes lesson materials for pupils and other preventive learning materials. The materials give unpleasant social media situations concrete names and instructions on how to deal with them.


  • Professionals working with children, such as teachers, principals and school social workers, have access to their own version of the web app created for professionals.

  • Through this interface they can ask for help on the behalf of a pupil, together with them, or report on their own work-related situations and get confidential help to online harassment and bullying.

  • When employees begin using our service, they are given an introductory training on the topic and the service.


  • Leaders, such as the municipality's department of education, receive general level statistics and an overview of online harassment and bullying in their community.

  • When every child, youngster, and employee within the community are aware that cyberbullying is tackled promptly, the threshold for offending others rises.

  • Readiness to support pupils with online conflict strengthens and their trust towards adults rises.

A classmate of mine secretly took a really unflattering video of me at school. I looked really ugly in the video. The classmate shared the video to my whole class on Snapchat without my permission. Now I'm being bullied at school.
