Changing MySpace Protections

After a lengthy period of cooperative discussions with Attorney General Bob McDonnell and ten other Attorneys General, MySpace has agreed to make several changes to its site to better protect children.

These changes include allowing parents to submit their children's emails so MySpace can prevent anyone using those emails from setting up profiles, making the default setting private for profiles of 16- and 17-year-olds, promising to respond within 72 hours to inappropriate content complaints, and committing more staff and or resources to review and classify photographs and discussion groups.
