MySpace and Amber Alerts

MySpace to send AMBER alerts on U.S. profiles: This is a good idea. I’ve always through that Amber Alerts to everyone’s cell phone would be handy too.

Popular online social network MySpace said Tuesday it will begin sending online alerts to users in certain U.S. regions to help find missing children as part of an expansion of plans to expand safeguards for users.

MySpace struck a partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to enable MySpace AMBER alerts, a program between the media and law enforcement to issue early warning broadcast bulletins in serious child abduction cases.
