Computer Monday: Child Safety / Protection OnLine

MySpace had yielded sometime ago by yielding to demands by US state justice officials that it expose sexual predators who may be prowling the youth-oriented networking Web site.

The move ended a standoff between MySpace and prosecutors from eight US states that had demanded the identities of convicted sex criminals who have posted their profiles on the News Corp-owned (Fox) Web site.

To me, the sad / scary part is when they started looking, MySpace ferreted out ~ 7,000 profiles of sex offenders. Wow.. if your kids are out there, make sure they are aware of what's out there.

In light of this article, I've added a few links for your information:


Be Informed.
