Safety Tips for Your Teens on MySpace

Is it any surprise that sexual predators have found their site of dreams on Myspace? A recent investigation determined with minimal effort, that there are well over 744 registered sex offenders who have found a home on MySpace.

MySpace is home to over 100 million users, so there are undoubtedly many more lurking there.
