No more secrecy.
“Abused Emojis” have been developed by a Swedish nonprofit, BRIS, to empower children to disclose situations of abuse more openly. The mission of the project is to make it possible for children and teenagers to talk about situations where they felt mistreated without having to describe into words what happened. The free application is for iPhone users and is available for download in iTunes.
