Wasden: Facebook to target predators

Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden today announced an agreement between Facebook and Idaho, along with 48 other states and the District of Columbia, to provide new safeguards to protect children on the popular social networking site from sexual predators and inappropriate content. “I look forward to working with Facebook on developing industry-wide practices to ensure a safe online environment for children,” Wasden said, adding that the agreement – similar to one reached earlier with MySpace – will result in “deterring and prosecuting criminals who misuse the Internet to prey upon children.” Click below to read Wasden’s full press release.
