As they get all the nail-biting, breathtaking details about the heroes and villains of cyberspace, they'll look forward to meeting up with the characters of the game, which is available as a free download from the site. You and your kids are invited to join the cadets at the Carnegie Cyber Academy .

BeSeen: A Free Mobile App
BeSeen is provided by Carnegie Mellon University and Web Wise Kids to teach youth how to be responsible in social networks by securing their private and personal information, protecting their online reputation and defending their peers.
This online safety mobile application is a single-player game that simulates a social networking website. The player creates a profile and starts earning "friend" characters and interacting with them. The player learns about others through their posts and helps them through challenges in order to win awards and make new friends.
In BeSeen , the ultimate quest is to make friends. At first, that is a matter of getting involved in school activities, but as more friends join a social circle, they bring their problems with them. To keep friends and make more, it's important not only to be involved but to be a good friend. Who is up for the challenge?
