    Treat others as you wish to be treated online and in daily life. Be careful what you say about yourself and others on your blog. Even if you’re not giving the address out, it’s still possible for your friends, peers, teachers, or school counselors to find your site and read it. It’s good to express yourself, but be sure that what you’re writing is not disrespectful, hurtful, or bullying in any way.

    In addition to the discovery that at least seven nonviolent sexual assaults on minors could be traced to meetings on MySpace, at least one murder has been linked to initial contact on the Web site. While these problems are in no way exclusive to MySpace -- the Internet in general is a playground for predators by nature of its anonymity -- the press has latched on to MySpace in particular because a lot of its users are under 18 and the site doesn't verify users' identities.
    The site does have rules in place intended to protect its users. You have to be 14 or older to register, and if you're younger than 16, only people in your Friend Space can access your profile. But kids lie about their age when they register, and so do people who are looking for underage sex partners.
    So MySpace finds itself in something of a Catch-22. A big part of the reason that MySpace is so successful is its "hey, whatever" openness. If the site employs identity-verification procedures, it will probably chase off the predators and the kids who are lying about their age. It will also potentially alienate a lot of the legitimate users who just want a cool place to hang out online without being asked for a credit card or social security number.
    According to MySpace representatives, the company dedicates one-third of its 175-person workforce to policing profiles for inaccuracies, although it's unclear whether that began before or after the media started referring to MySpace as "a parent's nightmare." These employees are looking for age discrepancies (matching stated ages with pictures), other profile "errors" and inappropriate material that might be accessed by underage users. The MySpace "Safety Tips" section asks users to report MySpace users who appear to be younger than 14. It also offers good advice that you'd find on any other social-networking or online-dating Web site:
    - Do not to post any personally identifiable information (like your address or phone number).
    - Only meet other MySpace users in public places unless you already know them in "real life."
    - Employ safe surfing techniques to avoid identity theft, phishing and other scams.
    - Immediately report a suspicious MySpace communication, and save the message so the police can trace it to the sender if necessary.
    On April 11, 2006, MySpace announced that it had hired a former federal prosecutor to be its first-ever chief security officer. MySpace says it is also working with WiredSafety.org to implement additional safety procedures on the site. But the cat's out of the bag. In the corporate advertising world, the revelation that your anonymous, full-of-teenagers Web site is attracting sexual predators is probably in the realm of catching Kate Moss with a straw in her nose -- sure, nobody's genuinely surprised, but having proof is a different story. MySpace has taken an active approach to solving its image problem by effectively banning 29,000 registered sex offenders from the site.
    There's no doubt that MySpace is popular -- so popular that people want to be able to take their MySpace with them -- and now they can with MySpace Mobile. Read on to find out about MySpace Mobile and an another highly anticipated recent application, MySpace IM.
    Aparna's Review:
    As far as meeting other MySpace users that you don't know in real life, only agree to meet them with parental consent, with a trusted adult, or not at all. There are pedophiles and sexual predators - so keeping that in mind, know that you are treading dangerous waters.

    Bullied Online AreAre your children
    Cyber bullying involves the use of information and technology such as e-mail, instant messaging, the publishing of defamatory personal web sites, and online personal polling web sites that are used to support conscious, willful, deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by one or more people with the intent to harm others.
    According to one victim, the difference between being bullied at school and being bullied on the Internet is that you cannot get away from cyber bullying as easily. Cyber bullying follows you, even after you get home from school.

    SAFETY TIPS
    MySpace makes it easy to express yourself, connect with friends and make new ones, but please remember that what you post publicly could embarrass you or expose you to danger. Here are some common sense guidelines that you should follow when using MySpace:
    Don't forget that your profile and MySpace forums are public spaces. Don't post anything you wouldn't want the world to know (e.g., your phone number, address, IM screens name, or specific whereabouts). Avoid posting anything that would make it easy for a stranger to find you, such as where you hang out every day after school.
    People aren't always who they say they are. Be careful about adding strangers to your friends list. It's fun to connect with new MySpace friends from all over the world, but avoid meeting people in person whom you do not fully know. If you must meet someone, do it in a public place and bring a friend or trusted adult.
    Harassment, hate speech and inappropriate content should be reported. If you feel someone's behavior is inappropriate, react. Talk with a trusted adult, or report it to MySpace or the authorities.
    Don't post anything that would embarrass you later. Think twice before posting a photo or info you wouldn't want your parents or boss to see!
    Don't mislead people into thinking that you're older or younger. If you lie about your age, MySpace will delete your profile.

    TIPS FOR PARENTS
    For teens, MySpace is a popular online hangout because the site makes it easy for them to express themselves and keep in touch with their friends.
    As a parent, please consider the following guidelines to help your children make safe decisions about using online communities.
    Talk to your kids about why they use MySpace, how they communicate with others and how they represent themselves on MySpace.
    Kids shouldn't lie about how old they are. MySpace members must be 14 years of age or older. We take extra precautions to protect our younger members and we are not able to do so if they do not identify themselves as such. MySpace will delete users whom we find to be younger than 14, or those misrepresenting their age.
    MySpace is a public space. Members shouldn't post anything they wouldn't want the world to know (e.g., phone number, address, IM screen name, or specific whereabouts). Tell your children they should avoid posting anything that would make it easy for a stranger to find them, such as their local hangouts.
    Remind them not to post anything that could embarrass them later or expose them to danger. Although MySpace is public, teens sometimes think that adults can't see what they post. Tell them that they shouldn't post photos or info they wouldn't want adults to see.
    People aren't always who they say they are. Ask your children to be careful about adding strangers to their friends list. It's fun to connect with new MySpace friends from all over the world, but members should be cautious when communicating with people they don't know. They should talk to you if they want to meet an online friend in person, and if you think it's safe, any meeting should take place in public and with friends or a trusted adult present.
    Harassment, hate speech and inappropriate content should be reported. If your kids encounter inappropriate behavior, let them know that they can let you know, or they should report it to MySpace or the authorities.

    Safety Tips for Social Networking
    Social Networks or Online Communities have become an integral part of the lives of many teenagers today. There are some real dangers involved, as there are in off-line aspects of a young person’s life. But rather than attempting to deny access and participation in this form of online socializing, we suggest that with some common sense, open, calm dialogue, and simple guidelines, participation in an online community can be a safe and enriching experience. Here are our tips for making this happen (More information about social networking is available by scrolling down this page.):
    For Parents:
    We recommend a minimum age of 16 for participation in on online community. Generally, children younger than 16 are not mature enough to handle the opportunities and challenges of social networking.
    Begin an open conversation about your teens' social networking experience. Try to establish a context for discussion that is not combative or accusing.
    ...
    As another last resort, consider installing keystroke capturing software on your family computer from **www.getnetwise.org**. Again, this won't deal with your child's using computers away from home.
    Talk with other parents, with teachers, and other adults who work with kids. Also, check out the links to other helpful websites below.
    For Children:
    Talk with your parents. Let them learn and understand the role of social networking in your life.
    Never post anything you wouldn't want your parents, teachers, or future employers to see.
    ...
    Only add people as friends if you know then in real life. Set privacy settings so that you have to approve people to be added as a friend.
    Include your parents and other trusted adults as friends. If your parents do not have an account, give them access to your profile.

    What are risks?
    Objectionable Content: On many online communities, users post material that is not appropriate for children or that many parents would find objectionable. This can include obscene language, racist or violent text or images, and a wide range of sexual content including pornography.
    Overexposure: Parents need to be concerned not only with what their children might see and hear, but also what they may present. Teens can make unwise decisions about what they post online. This includes posting pictures of himself or herself or of friends in a sexually provocative or incriminating manner; publishing personal information that sexual predators could use to learn more about a child or their friends; or bragging about exploits (real or made-up) or making threatening and harassing remarks that could have negative consequences.
    Contact with predators: Much publicity has been generated around sexual predators (mainly adults) looking for minors to exploit. There are such individuals who frequent online communities that teens use. Sometimes, these adults will pretend to be teens themselves, but often they will be quite clear about their age and intent.
