On what basis are activities marked flagged?

Follow

The Securly web filter not only filters harmful websites and malicious content, but also monitors and analyzes Google searches and social media posts for cyberbullying, self-harm, and grief. Social media is an integral part of students’ lives today and bullying has shifted from locker-room to the virtual world. Students also google a lot of harmful stuff pertaining to self-harm, suicide, etc. It is therefore imperative that while allowing students to access these sites, we monitor them for the students’ safety as well.

Understanding the Flagged Activity Page

  1. Your Securly account gives you a detailed view of students’ social media activity (Facebook, Twitter, and Google+), and separates out all suspicious and disturbing activity under the ‘Flagged’ tab. While positive activity is logged under ‘Reports’, any disturbing activity gets a place of its own.

2. The icon next to each entry will let you know the source of the activity. For example Facebook, Twitter, and Google Searches.

3. We use a sophisticated sentiment analysis algorithm that can distinguish sentiments of depression, grief, self-harm, and bullying and list them out for you. You can filter these flagged reports by site, keyword, or sentiment to help you understand the data better.

Flagged Activity, therefore, displays information in three distinct sections.

       I. Flagged Sentiments: This will display the activity that detects the following sentiments

                 a. Grief

                 b. Bullying

                 c. Self-harm

       II. Flagged Sites

       III. Flagged Keyword
