The dimensions of violence have been axes and topics of discussion in security policies. In the case of the media and Internet dimensions, its relevance lies in the prevention of violence in electronic networks. Studies on violence on Facebook highlight that harassment is less likely if contact requests are regulated. On Twitter, violence is contained with specific guidelines for harassment or bullying. On YouTube, content complaints moderate violence. In TikTok, the dynamics of the content inhibits its influence on the reactions. On Instagram, the contents are displayed according to the user's profile. In WhatsApp, the stigmatization of messages and senders underestimates their potential. However, the relationship between Internet violence with other violence has not been explained. Therefore, the aim of the study will be the empirical testing of a trajectory model to predict violence prevention. A psychometric, cross-sectional and correlational study was carried out with a selection of 100 students. The results show that Internet violence is associated to a lesser extent with other dimensions of violence and does not transfer its incidence on the prevention of violence. In relation to the literature from 2019 to 2022, communication and risk control policies are recommended.
