MySpace hopes Facebook will follow suit as they clean their network

Earlier this week, WWAY told you MySpace found 90,000 convicted sex offenders on it’s social networking site. Those criminals got the boot, but many more may have slipped through the cracks.

MySpace originally refused to comply with a subpoena from Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. Blumenthal ordered MySpace to raise safety standards.

After MySpace gave in, and supposedly “cleaned house”, the company issued a statement portraying itself as a social-networking leader.

The company said it is “the first social-networking site to use state-of-the art technology to remove registered sex offenders from its site”, and hopes Facebook follows in its footsteps.

MySpace used a technology called Sentinel Safe to catch the registered sex offenders.

According to ABC, Facebook has been issued a subpoena as well, but has not yet responded.
