Info from a MySpace.com Profile
You may change
your name, age, and/or add to the information on your Profile through "Edit Profile." Start by clicking
on "Home" in the top navigation menu from any MySpace web
page. Once on your personal home page, click on "Edit Profile," appearing
in the upper left portion of the page, next to your picture. You will
be taken to your "Edit Profile" page where you may edit or
add information from the following categories: name, age, city, state,
zip, ethnicity, body type, reason you're on MySpace, who you are looking
for, your headline, about you, interests, background, lifestyle, schools
you've attended and companies for whom you have worked.
Don’t Include Personal
Info in the Form of Surveys or Questionnaires
Although filling out a questionnaire
or survey online and posting it in your MySpace profile may seem like a
good way to get to know other teens.
It’s not the most private way of exchanging info. Answers to these
seemingly harmless questions can provide a predator just the information
they need to make contact, befriend, and ultimately meet their victim.
Unless you know the person, don’t
exchange such private information with them, even through IM, email, or
Blocking a User
To block a user follow this step:
You will need to visit that user's profile and click 'Block User'. This
is found in the Contact box.
Remember: Blocked users can still view your profile, but they cannot
send you a message or communicate with you. There is no way to prevent
from seeing your profile.
Reporting Inappropriate Content
If there is something on the profile itself that is inappropriate, look
at the bottom of the profile and click on the link 'Report Inappropriate
Content'. If the content is an image uploaded to the user's image gallery,
click on the 'Report this Image' link that is under the image.
