I don't agree with it. There are too many creeps, and too many ways around monitoring systems. There's no fool proof way to keep the pervs away from the kids. It's awful and it's sad but it's true. It's too high a risk, especially a site like myspace. I don't think kids should be online until they're fourteen, anyway.

I think that it would be alright for young children to have a myspace as long as they don't become friends with the wrong people. They need to be monitored. I know that there is no 100% way to find out if the people who get online are who they say they are or not. I know that I am careful as to who I accept on my friend list.

Really young kids shouldnt. There are just to many creepy people on there. And even older kids that have one, should be monitored.

My daughter does have a myspace, but she is 15, and it's private, AND I have complete control over it. I visit it daily, she can't add anyone who I don't know via school, I completely monitor everything she does online. When she is older, and not living here, then I will not do that, but while she is here, it's done by our rules or else you don't get to do it. I'm very very strict when it comes to my kids using the internet. As more parents should be.

okay i know about myspace because i go on it, what you do is you add freinds, the ones you know an talk to them, you can accept or deny people who want to add you, an they cant talk to you unless you add them, an to be extra safe you can not show where you live or put a fake age like 99 so they dont know how old you are, myspace has privacy settings to, you can put your profile on private, or m you can turn it to any1 under 18 can look at it, but yeah myspace is safe =] take it from a kid

Myspace rocks. It allows independents a place to show their stuff, without greedy corps sharking us. You want to kill Myspace because of creeps? Then maybe you should kill our schools and churches, as there's enough creeps there!

I'm not sure. I think that it really depends on the kid. If the parent feels that they are mature enough to not let out any information, then they should be allowed. MySpace has a filter for younger kids that will allow them to have a blocked account. Only people in the kids friend list will be able to see any of thier information. So, that is a good protective measure that you can use for your kid.

I don't have a problem with kids on their to talk to their other friends. But they need to be monitored very closely so they are not taken advantage of.
