Myspace is EVIL! EVIL! EVIL! Predators can trick kids into thinking their amoung their peers. Virus, spyware, malware, adware, Fraud, scam, phising, Browser exploit,stuff that kills computers, Adult Content, Child REAPING, and MIND MANIPULATIONS!! AND HATE excessable. ITS EVIL EVIL EVIL! ALL MY RATINGS ARE EVIL!
I agree this can be a very child-UNfriendly site, but if you monitor where your children go online [I have done this since my children were interested in 'surfing like mommy'], who their 'friends' are, etc, I have not had a problem. I use it to share pics with my family that is spread from one side of the country, and sometimes world, to another. If the page is marked private you don't get many unsolicited requests. As in all things online - YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL AND WATCHFUL.
I think myspace is a great thing, i think children 10+ would be fine using this, parents just need to check up on their kids make sure there not talking to people they shouldn't be, that sort of thing. It's the kids that put " yeah i go to this school, this is my full name, i always hangout with my friends here, i live at.... that sort of thing, people just need to think.
Myspace.com is a very good site, no spy ware, ad ware, and no viruses, but there are lots of sick twisted individuals on it, and i do not recommend for children under 12 or 13, as by that age, they know who they should talk to, and all, I also recommend to monitor the childrens behavior when they watch videos, as there is a lot of adult videos on it, and also, only add apps you trust, none others
