Myspace finds 29,000 convicted sex offenders
Four times more than it expected
MySpace says that it has detected and deleted 29,000 convicted sex offenders on its service.
According to News.com the company orginally said that it had deleted about 7,000 user profiles that belonged to convicted offenders.
However the real figure was revealed by US state authorities after MySpace turned over information on convicted sex offenders it had removed to the government.
Late last year, the company linked up with background verification company Sentinel Tech Holdings to co-develop the first US national database of convicted sex offenders to make it easier to track offenders on the Internet.
