MySpace Launches Safety Campaign With Seventeen
Los Angeles-based MySpace.com has launched a new Internet safety campaign with the teen magazine Seventeen. MySpace said today that it would launch a nationwide effort to educate Internet users about safe online practices, in a strategic partnership with Seventeen Magazine. The web site will provide parents, teens, and teachers with tips, suggestions, and information on safe Internet behavior. Seventeen will offer a MySpace profile that includes content and tips to MySpace users on Internet safety, along with other material. MySpace has been under intense scrutiny for the ease at which people can access information about teenagers and children, and for several well-publicized incidents of predators finding victims on the site, and the move is the latest in its efforts to ease the concerns of parents about the popular social networking site.
