LUCIO LOPEZ, Luis Antonio; PRIETO QUEZADA, Ma. Teresa  y  CARRILLO NAVARRO, José Claudio. Manifestations of violence among students of higher education: The uses of WhatsApp. Alteridad [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.2, pp.204-213. ISSN 1390-8642.

In this article we present the results of an investigation regarding violence demonstration through WhatsApp among students of Higher Education, carried out in 11 educational programs. To learn the new types of mistreatment that faculty students enrolled in a public university in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico do and suffer through WhatsApp. 541 students were surveyed as part of a probabilistic sample of a population of 17 000 students, working with a 95% confidence level to estimate a proportion by means of a bilateral interval with a conservative approach obtaining an error limit of. 041 (4.1%). Among the most relevant results, we found that 48% of the sample has felt uncomfortable and disgusted by pornographic photographs that their contacts have sent without their consent; the same happened with 37.4% of the sample of students to whom pornographic videos were sent. These types of messages constitute new abuses that offend those who receive them, which is also the case for 18.7% of the students who have been targets of seemingly harmless memes, however, those who appear in them suffer ridiculing. Another important finding was the one related to indifference and how it has become a new type of violence suffered by 77.8% of students.
