MySpace's Next Big Privacy Idea

Social networking giant MySpace plans to offer free software enabling parents to keep tabs on their children's online identities. Code named Zephyr, the software tracks the name, age and location that children are using on MySpace. It also tracks and stores any changes to the data.

The information Zephyr provides is already available to anyone online, but children often change their names and ages, making it difficult for parents to locate young users. With the software, parents can determine whether their kids have profiles and validate the age listed in it, Hemanshu Nigam, chief security officer of MySpace, said in a statement.
