Social networking giant MySpace has confessed identifying and barred around 90,000 registered sex offenders ceasing their access to the site over the past two years.
The figure is 40,000 more than the count previously acknowledged by MySpace, according to Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, a co-chairman of the task force of state attorneys general looking into sex offenders' use of social networking, reports Reuters.
The online networking giant said that people who had been found guilty of sex crimes were removed and blocked them from the site.
Does this shocking exposure suggest that social networking websites are crowded with sex offenders? What can the authorities do to ensure a better security?
