    Abstract

    The well-being and safety of children and young people are important aspects in all contexts of everyday life. In particular, a feeling of insecurity might be a problem when being alone. Bullying is also common among school-age children and teenagers. Hence, there is a great need for personalized support systems to resolve these problems. This article describes a new area of research in sensor and social web development to help indicate children's insecurity in their daily environment. Deeper integration of sensors and the social web would allow us to foresee drastic changes in communities and new social-ethical scenarios will emerge.
