    Facebook is to add a slew of new safeguards to protect young users from sexual predators and cyber bullies.

    At the heart of the changes are efforts to ban convicted sex offenders from the site and finding better ways to verify users' ages and identities.

    The agreement was announced by Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal in a deal along with other attorneys general around America.

    "This marks another watershed towards social networking safety," he said.

    It will "protect kids from online predators and inappropriate content," he added.

    It comes on the heels of a similar comprehensive agreement that 49 states and Washington, DC, made with MySpace last January.

    Well that was a good news, though it was long time ago posted :sweat:
    what they have done is just fine and this will help to protect the
    children from those abusers.

    Most abusers are on myspace anyways. Facebook has a pretty great system to keep them away.
