Abstract

Social networks have been a revolution for our society. The rapid expansion of these networks results in more and more children and teenagers using them regularly. However, despite the fact that most social networks have privacy control systems, most young people do not use these controls because teenagers are usually unaware of the privacy risks that exist in the Internet. This inadequate use of social media can lead to different social problems such as cyber-bullying, grooming, or sexting. The best way to prevent these risks is through education. In this paper we propose an empathic pedagogical agent model for education on good practices in the use of social networks. The agent interacts empathetically with users through the social network. The user’s emotion is recognized through a camera and is processed in real time to obtain the emotion. The agent analyzes the recognized emotion and the users’ actions and looks for the best strategy to advice and educate the teenager in the correct use of the social network.
