MySpace Unveils Safety Plan

MySpace Unveils Safety Plan

MySpace has announced a new plan to help protect teenagers from online predators. Together with state attorney generals representing the Working Group on Social Networking, MySpace revealed that it has agreed to more than 60 design and function changes in an effort to shield young users from criminals. The group hopes that Facebook and other social networks will help make the guidelines an industry standard.
The process is still ongoing, however, and MySpace has been slow to agree to many suggested provisions due to privacy concerns. Age verification techniques continue to be a key sticking point between MySpace and government officials.
The social networking site has often been highlighted as evidence in criminal cases, and was closely linked to a recent [suicide](http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5gg5xCtQtLBF6vJqWXStItGEOsJfwD8U25LK00), which was widely covered in the media. Now the company is hoping to turn things around and show that it is serious about safety concerns.
