MySpace to expand controls on sexual predators
7:37 a.m.: MySpace to expand controls on sexual predators
Article Created: 01/14/2008 07:38:14 AM PST
ALBANY, N.Y. - MySpace.com has agreed with 45 states to add extensive measures to combat sexual predators. An official familiar with the multistate agreement said MySpace, the huge online social networking Web site, agreed to include several online protections and participate in a working group to develop age-verification and other technologies.
The official said MySpace will also accept independent monitoring and changes to the structure of its site.
The agreement is scheduled to be announced today in Manhattan by attorneys general from New Jersey, North Carolina, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement hadn't yet been announced.
The attorneys general have been seeking greater controls for online networking sites to prevent sexual predators from using those sites to contact children.
There was no immediate comment from MySpace, a unit of News Corp.
