In the third and final phase of the project, password-protected forums on the online platform were used to discuss social networks and virtual friendships (as opposed to the "real" relationships dealt with in the previous phases). Again, a large number of questions concerning different aspects of social networks formed he basis of the discussion in the forums.

This time, about 150 students from all participating schools posted about 1,450 contributions to these topics. This website only shows a small selection of the posts. The statements have been selected for the quality of their content and should also show views from each of the participating schools.
