MySpace Safety

Original post made by IT Savvy Daddy, Community Center, on Jun 17, 2006

I want to raise awareness among the youth, and adults alike in regard to logging out of their Myspace accounts when using a public internet access station (mall, library, etc.). If the user forgets, Predators can "jump on" the station after the user leaves, and obtain access to all the data on that user's account, and that user’s friends, and their friends, and so on, despite it being set to "private" by setting the age to 14. We saw this unfold at the mall.

Have you seen the new Internet Safety DVD that came out? I saw it at Worth a look?

Have enjoyed visiting and reading this article. We are trying to get our website off the ground and offering parents a forum and tools for social network safety. I have been working locally with parents and organizations to address the issue and answer their questions. The website and products were created to help reach a nationwide audience.

We are most excited about our seminar series that is starting in August and are looking for ways to get the word out. If you know of a good avenue to pursue or can offer a link we would greatly appreciate it.

Also would you mind if we list you as a partner website in addition to our related links section?

Thanks for your time,
