Just this week, MySpace issued news about deploying a technology solution to identify and block convicted sex offenders within the next 30 days.
Once again, Anick Jesdanun of the Associated Press, covers the MySpace age verification issue in this article published yesterday. You can read what Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has to say about it as well, which basically boils down to believing this effort is ineffective in the absence of an age and identity verification system.
Thanks Blumenthal. I couldn’t agree more. It’s very evident that an age verification system is needed to support the efforts social networks are making.
