So the problem is the site, not the people?
This article shows what has been shown time and time again, that young people (who I previously called "irresponsible children") are not old enough to understand the dangers of posting personal information and meeting people without thinking it through rationally. This type of behavior is characteristic of "the teenage years". Driven highly by emotion, teenagers and the "tweens" make very rash decisions, usually, without the consent of their parents, sometimes outright rebellious of their parents. There is a reason that you are not considered an adult until your 18, and by what I saw at college, being called an adult at that age is pushing it.
MySpace is an open forum that allows anyone, ANYONE, to create an account and put as much information as they choose. I would normally say that it's the parent's responsibility, but that can't be said since many parents don't care what they're kids are doing. So. . . do we just say "oh, well, they should know better"? Of course not, how would they know better? That's what parenting is for, whether their kids like it or not.
I don't see much good come from MySpace. College kids, "the future of America" are wasting more time spelling poorly on people's pages than actually learning. I blame the kids if not more, however, they still are teenagers that generally fail to look at the big picture.
I've been out of my teenage years over ten years now, I had three younger brothers and sisters go through the teenage years, one's still in them. I've had my share of teenage experiences and decisions. Fifteen years ago, I probably would have been on MySpace and now at age 31, I'd be rolling my eyes thinking how stupid I was wasting time on a meaningless site.
What the hell is wrong with you?
There's nothing wrong with me, although after reading what can happen to two young, naive and irresponsible girls with the help of MySpace, I'd ask the same question to you. . .
