Spot is an app that uses data visualization to create the largest anonymous support network for victims of bullying.
Users can record when they are bullied, and how, and have the option of leaving a note which will always be associated with their spot. Then their spot is added to the network of other accounts of bullying, which they can browse by type, and toggle between location, age, gender or ethnicity. Users can explore within graphs to see individual spots or experiences, and notes that might be associated with these.
Ultimately, spot encourages victims to share their experiences, and most importantly reminds them that they are not alone. Spot is a collaborative effort that demonstrate what a community of individuals are capable of when they come together.
