HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Following the virtual world's revolution and it having a major portion of people's lives all around the world, Palestine was also greatly affected by the virtual world, especially social media, which reality is increasing drastically day after day as we witness negative outcomes due to the state and individuality of this world, which allows and is a fertile environment for the crime to spread in its various forms, for us to witness dozens of fraud and defamation cases occurring between the folds of this world on a daily basis.

Ma'an Network, including the radio network, TV, website and social media pages, determined to handle the subject in depth, in cooperation with the United Nations Population Fund and the Spanish Cooperation; the cooperation will highlight on cybercrimes and cyber harassment between reality, control and social and cultural effects.

The first episode of the second seasons of "Partners, but" takes on the issue through an open discussion of cybercrimes; the show is based on highlighting issues considered sensitive to the Palestinian society in order to find solutions via group workshops in which youths and representatives of the local community are an essential element.

The episode was sponsored and recorded in the Polytechnic University in Hebron City; several students who were taking part in the workshop discussed the effects of social media on the youth and possible ways to raise awareness in the society in order to limit the size of cybercrimes with the episode's specialist guests including an expert in social development, a psychologist, a lieutenant at the cybercrimes unit.
