safety center

Letter from CEO, Ilja Terebin

We launched Ask.fm in 2010 to create a place where young people could ask each other the questions that are shaping their world, and share the thoughts, ideas and feelings these questions inspire.

Theirs is an age of curiosity. Their lives are changing. They are making the challenging transition from childhood to adult life. We give them a platform where they feel sufficiently confident to do this openly and honestly.

We believe that Ask.fm plays an important and positive role in the developing lives of young people around the world. With more than 80 million registered users in over 150 countries, we are proud of the contribution we are making and the community we are building.

Each member’s safety and well-being remains as important to us as it is to them, their friends, parents, guardians, and teachers. Of course, like any community, be it online or in the school playground, a tiny minority can spoil life for the overwhelming majority. That is why I want to tell you that we are always working hard to keep Ask.fm a fun and safe place for our members and users.

Ilja Terebin,

CEO, Ask.fm
