HABBO HOTEL Safer Internet Day Supporter in all Habbo sites
Safer Internet Day 2013
Habbo is a place to have fun and a good time. From the very first moment they step into our hotel, we want users to know that they can enjoy themselves wihout 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 iniciatives such as the Habbo Helpers, where Habbos themselves reply to user queries and give advice and support, even in cases of bullying, 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 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.
The company has its headquarters in Helsinki, Finland, and currently employs some 60 employees worldwide.

We have planned a number of activities around Safer Internet Day:
1) SID 2013 film promotion
We will be kicking off Safer Internet day by promoting the official Safer Internet film on our youtube channel.
2) Habbo SID 2013 video competition
We will then ask users to create their own Habbo version of the Safer Internet film, displaying the best entries in our Safety Centre and our youtube channel.
3) Habbo Infobus talks
Our staff will hold information talks in our official Infobus help centre about how to stay safe on Habbo. We will discuss with our users topics proposed by the Safer Internet Day organization, such as respect the rights of others online, the right to privacy and growing up in safe online and offline environments.
We will create an official room to celebrate SID. We will ask our users to help us celebrate the day with us there and to shout the SID 2013 slogan "Connect with Respect". Users who visit the room and shout the slogan will be given a badge with the SID 2013 logo that they will be able to show off to those users who have not entered the room yet. This way they will help spread the word about SID throughout the wider Habbo Community.
We will ccordinate local SID activities in collaboration with organizations such as Protégeles in Spain and Save the Children in Italy.
