About this Project:

The problem that our project addresses is that it can be used as an opportunity for bullying and exclusion.
The way out app would work would be to first sign in and select a category, and depending on that category, you would follow the directions below. For example if you selected online therapy, once you clicked on it, there would be an option to select your therapist or another option would be no preference meaning that you don’t have a specific therapist. From then on you would follow the instructions depending on what you selected.

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Principal at Minds On Design Lab — Emoti-Con Judge
Congrats on your design for the "Negative Effects Of Social Media" app. I think you tapped into an important issue and problem and appreciate your efforts to explore a solution. I enjoyed and appreciated all of the detail you shared in your slide presentation. It was great to get to know the process you went through and to have you "talk" us through your ideas.

To take your app pitch up a notch, it would have been helpful for your screen wireframes to be presented a little bit larger and clearer. This would have complimented to the details you shared in your writing nicely.

I think an app like your is important. Thank you for sharing your project and hard work with us. Again, congrats on all your efforts to design this needed solution.

Thanks for picking this interesting topic and preparing the design also for the app. It is nice to see you talk about the negative impact of social media and bullying and exclusion as our problems. Bravo.
Since you are focusing on a social cause and creating an app to support, it would have been better to bring in some statistics and recommendations from experts before showing how you are incorporating the same in your app.
In any case, this is a very good first step toward this initiative. All the best.

Great subject! The detrimental effects of social media, bullying, and marginalization.   It would have been great to include some real world data into your presentation.

This is an excellent starting point for this endeavor. Best wishes.
