The New York Times reports that MySpace gave two attorney generals the names of 90,000 sex offenders the company banned from the site. The amount was 40,000 more than MySpace acknowledged previously.
MySpace’s disclosure follows a report by the Internet Safety Technical Task Force, a panel created by 49 attorneys general, that said the issue is overblown. It concluded the problem of bullying among children, both online and offline, was far more serious than sexual solicitation of minors by adults online.
Facebook is also working with the two attorney generals.
