Myspace not the only place to find sexual predators

If you thought Facebook was immune to the sort of sexual predators known to be lurking on Myspace, think again. According to the New York Times, "Connecticut's attorney general, said that investigators in his state were looking into "three or more" cases of convicted sex offenders who had registered on Facebook and had "also found inappropriate images and content" on the service. The inquiry continues, he said, and state officials have contacted Facebook and asked it to remove the profiles."

Myspace recently took major flack for not disclosing the full scope of the problems it faces, when 29,000 profiles were removed, more than 4 times the number previously estimated by the company. Will Facebook begin to fall to the same fate?
