Protect yourself on MySpace

Don’t post anything you wouldn’t want the world to know (phone number, address, etc.). Avoid posting anything that would make it easy for a stranger to find you, such as where you hang out after school.

Be careful about adding strangers to your friends list. Avoid meeting people in person whom you do not fully know.

Harassment, hate speech and inappropriate content should be reported. Talk with a trusted adult, or report it to www.myspace.com/ or the authorities.

If you are under 14 and pretend to be older or if you are over 18 and pretend to be a teenager to contact underage users, MySpace will delete your profile.

Don’t get hooked by a phishing scam. Fraudsters send spam or pop-up messages to lure user name and passwords from unsuspecting victims. Don’t reply to e-mail or pop-up messages that ask for information. Don’t click on links in the message, or cut and paste the link into your Web browser.
