Warning to parents of young teens

I listen to a talk radio station, a techy site, which I highly recommend and can be found here http://komando.com

Anyway, on her site I found a website that young teens frequent called myspace.com

Anyway, I took a look on there, and actually found my daughter on there! I was shocked. She has her first name, fake last name, location, fake age, home email address, and a pic of her and her friends.

If you go to the site above, it will show you a list of sites that are currently popular for young teens.

IMO, this site is not appropriate for young teens due to the pictures that anyone, including adults can submit. Also, children tend to put personal info out there, not realizing they can be tracked by anyone. Try it out parents, put your childs name in and see what happens just like I did.

This site is very helpful for many other techy questions, problems, etc. Let me know what you think about myspace.com though, and beware if you have a young teen.

sorry if that was a bummer for people, I just everyone to know.
