Virtual Victim App

Agency: Scholz & Volkmer


Facebook app:
“Virtual Victim” is a unique Facebook Application developed to support „Terre Des Femmes“, a Women’s Rights Organization based in Berlin, Germany, in their fight against domestic violence. Female Facebook users can record a portrait picture via webcam and add bruises and scars to their picture. The Virtual Victim App adds a very intriguing message to the picture and creates a new post in the user’s news feed on Facebook: „One out of four women becomes a victim of domestic violence. Would you do something if it was me?“ The stark effect of this message and scarred portrait encourages Facebook friends to pause for reflection. Who wouldn’t be deeply affected, if a friend or acquaintance was the victim of domestic violence?

This professional campaign titled 'Virtual Victim App' was published in Germany in December, 2010. It was created for the brand: Terre Des Femmes, by ad agency: Scholz & Volkmer. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Public Interest industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 13 years ago.
