HABBO HOTEL Safer Internet Day Supporter in all Habbo sites
Safer Internet Day 2014
Habbo Hotel is a place for teens to have fun and a good time. From the very first moment teens step into our virtual Hotel, we want them to know that they can enjoy themselves without offending anyone and that being tolerant when it comes to the opinions of and differences between others is the way to go. There is also a certain community spirit, driven by initiatives such as the Habbo Helpers, where Habbos themselves reply to user queries and give advice and support following our rules, known as the Habbo Way, and our safety tips (useful summarized advices not only in Habbo but also in Internet).
We are a community that is aware of our rights but, above all, we work to create a community that is conscious of its responsibilities.
Habbo Hotel is the world’s largest social game and community for teens. Users join by creating a fully customized online character called a Habbo. From there, they can explore a wide variety of spaces and millions of rooms created by other users in the community, play a variety of games, connect with friends, decorate their own rooms, and have fun through creativity and self-expression.
Currently Habbo Hotel has customers in over 150 countries and the service is available in 12 language versions. To date, over 243 million characters have been created and 10 million unique users worldwide visit Habbo Hotel each month, spending a total of 45 million hours in the service.
