We recently told you about Microsoft's Digital Civility Index providing a new measure of people's safety online and exposure to risks, launched on the occasion of Safer Internet Day (SID) 2017. Microsoft attended the US Safer Internet Day event to talk about the index. Youth and teens attending the event embraced the corresponding "Digital Civility Challenge" and committed to being kinder and more respectful to one another online.
On Safer Internet Day (SID) 2017, Microsoft challenged people around the world to embrace "digital civility" and to treat each other with respect and dignity online. It may sound simple, but new Microsoft research shows people are concerned about the tone of online interactions and worry that risks will increase in the future.
