Selma Franssen is a communications professional and
journalist. Throughout her career, she has been responsible for
countless social media outlets, including those of one of Europe's
biggest music festivals. As someone who knows the privacy settings of
social media channels inside out, she always kept a low profile on her
personal pages. Selma never imagined she could become a victim of

why anyone can become a victim of online violence and will share the
mistakes she made, so you don't have to.
