Safer Internet Day 2015
Habbo Hotel is a place for teens to meet new and existing friends, express your creativity and simply have fun. It’s a richly colorful pixel art wonder world populated by millions of avatars called Habbos. Explore millions of rooms created by other users in the virtual community.
Habbo is a virtual hotel where millions of people from around the world go to live out their fantasies. It’s a massively multiplayer experience where users design rooms, roleplaying in organizations, and even open their own trade shops and cafes. Currently there are over 120 million user-generated rooms in the 12 Habbo language communities.
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 Ambassadors, a group of experienced, mature Habbos who's main mission it is to welcome new users to the hotel and show them the Habbo ropes. They also support our Habbo way and give advice to community members on how to surf safely.
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 has planned the following exciting activities and events to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2015 worldwide:
Safety Game and Quiz:
Together with our users we have created 11 amazing virtual rooms for our community to learn how we can create a better internet together. Each room contains a game to explore different internet safety topics, such as data privacy or how to fight against cyberbullying, and a quiz that tests Habbo’s knowledge and awareness of internet safety.
All participants will be rewarded with a SID virtual badge.
SID Info sessions:
Our virtual InfoBus (official Hotel space to discuss about safety topics) will be opened for chat sessions hosted by local organizations (e.g.: Internet Segura PT, Help Wanted in the Netherlands or Ditch the Label in UK) and Habbo Ambassadors (peer 2 peer discussions on how to create a better internet together).
Pixel Art contest:
Our users can participate in a pixel art competition to create a Habbo Poster with Safety Info to celebrate SID 2015.
SID 2015 Hashtag promotion:
We will ask our users in our official Twitter and FB pages to let us know, using hashtag #SID2015 and #SIDHabbo, what would they do to create a better internet.
