What are the key dangers of MySpace?
Parents should know that MySpace profiles are public and a valid e-mail is the only requirement for membership on MySpace. Thus, child predators too frequently masquerade as teens and teens lie about their ages in order to get access to adult content. There are no MySpace parental controls in place to monitor your teen’s activity within the MySpace system.
How do parents protect teens on MySpace?
The lack of parental controls on MySpace and easy way to get inappropriate content have prompted some parents to entirely block access to the social network from home computers and cell phones. Some parents prefer not to stop their teens’ parties on MySpace, but monitor their activity.
In case monitoring is your choice you can just register on MySpace and follow your child or you might use third-party MySpace parental controls that could make monitoring process much more easy and allow to avoid reading your teen’s harmless gossip with friends on daily basis.
