MySpace and Sex Offender Data

Attorneys general from the following eight states have requested MySpace to provide information on how many sex offenders are using MySpace and where they live:

  • North Carolina
  • Connecticut
  • Georgia
  • Idaho
  • Mississippi
  • New Hampshire
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania

May 29 was the deadline given for the requests to be responded to by News Corp., owners of MySpace.

Continuing to educate teens on using social networking sites responsibly was conveyed by a librarian that was interviewed on the news regarding this story. It is great that a library is seen as a source of information for social networking sites and how libraries are using social networking in positive ways.

What do people think of the attorneys general request of MySpace?
