Is MySpace the New Net Nanny?

Parents are suing MySpace because their kids got sexually abused through "friends" they met on MySpace. Now, has MySpace become the new net nanny? Shouldn't parents be taking care of their kids and watching what they are doing online?

Four families have sued the popular social-networking site MySpace and its owner, News Corp., after their teenage daughters were solicited online and sexually abused by adults they met on the site, lawyers for the families said Thursday.

The Texas law firms of Arnold and Itkin of Houston and Barry and Loewy of Austin said that families from New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas filed suits Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, charging recklessness, fraud and negligent misrepresentation by the companies.

MySpace is not a NannySpace. It's not like people don't know about MySpace. Everyone does. MySpace is a wide open community. If kids use it, parents should spend the time to watch them.
These parents should really spend more time taking care of their children.
