The Better Internet for Kids (BIK) guide to online services aims to provide key information about some of the most popular apps, social networking sites and other platforms which are commonly being used by children and young people (and adults) today.

Thanks to Gust MEES for sharing this post. This app for choosing multiple stories and selecting directions for the story is a great addition to my "Create Your Own Adventure" resource site inspired by Bill Selak http://delivr.com/2xxbs
