Love Chat Box: Virtual Romance

Taiwan Public Television Service Foundation


- Interactive Children and Youth Content

"Love Chat Box," an interactive web page by Youth News @PTS, mirrors the complexities of online connections among teenagers. As social platforms become vital for seeking connection, the site highlights the pitfalls of internet anonymity, especially concerning "sexual" interests. This simulated social networking app raises awareness about online scams, offering a supportive space for those facing similar challenges. Through a realistic scenario, it discourages deception and private photo sharing, emphasizing the potential horror of such situations. Importantly, it calls on parents and teachers to engage, understanding the fear and helplessness of teens, advocating collaborative support in navigating online risks. The message is clear: unite to foster empathy and comprehension in the face of complex teen relationships online.
