Safety on MySpace

As people spend more time online, there are greater challenges in keeping them safe. The Internet provides a portal for looking into the lives of many. Personal information is often shared over the Internet for complete strangers to see; information that many would not share to a stranger on the street is given freely on the Internet. An additional challenge for parents and law enforcement is the participation of children and young people on the Internet. Many children lack the experience to avoid dangerous situations and can fall victim to predators.
