Participants are expected to share photos of the challenges/tasks completed by them.

While some say the user has to install some app on their smart phone, others say it’s via social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook where the administrators get in touch with the participant after those interested throwout postings on social media asking for a “curator”. A number of different hashtags #bluewhalechallenge, #curatorfindme, #i_am_whale act as signals for the anonymous curators.
