The emerging web 2.0 context is characterized by, among other things, the increasing importance of internet users, who have progressed from being mere consumers of content to become producers, i.e., "prosumers". Social networks are a particularly suitable environment for the emergence of new communication modalities and possibilities. This report focuses on the phenomenon of informers, a type of anonymous platform that emerged in early 2013 in Spain, initially supported by the Facebook social network. The report examines the origins and rationale for informers, as well as the potential legal liabilities that could affect site administrators, content generators or participants through the I like button or additional comments, taking into account current national and international legislation.
