    Hi,

    I was wondering if anybody knew if the website My Space is safe to use as an online communication place. :doubt:

    Need to know this for my teens that want to join.


    Also...is any of you using YAHOO! 360 ?? What is your opinion of it ?


    Thank You !

    yup. but the way i look at, myspace can be a fun community for people as long as u avoid the wrong people and u have a bit of common sense and not download or click anything suspicious. also (for firefox users) there are greasemonkey scripts that can remove custom styles and embedded media from a persons myspace profile. its handy for slower internet connections and it makes them much easier to read.

    You are sooo right WSFuser !! :)

    Common Sense makes a great difference.

    But sadly not all...especially younger people have it (yet). :doubt:
    And some may think...oh ...it cannot happen to MEE.

    You know...the old sayings...:rolleyes:

    ;)

    One of our News station had a clip on My Space and other such outlets and it reminded me to tell my nieces\nephews again to watch what they put on their profiles. There are some sick cookies out there visiting these type places :(
