January 15, 2008
Several Attorney Generals of U.S. states say MySpace has reached an agreement to make changes that would make it far more difficult for sexual predators to use- and abuse- the service.
The actions- which encompass agreements with more than 45 states- include the following actions on the part of MySpace:Allow parents to submit children's e-mail addresses to MySpace to prevent anyone from misusing the addresses to set up profiles.
Make the default setting "private" for 16- and 17-year-old users.
Respond within 72 hours to complaints about inappropriate content and devote more staff and resources to classify photographs and discussion groups.
Strengthen software to find underage users.
Create a high school section for users under 18 years old.
