MySpace Predators to Avoid

MySpace users are drawn to the site because of all of the bells & whistles - the tweaks, the enhancements, the decorations. They love to and live to "pimp" their pages. I researched 23 websites after googling "myspace tweaks" and "myspace codes." Only six of them were safe! As a matter of fact, every website on page one of the Google results turned out to be ones to avoid. How sad!

Online predators know that the majority of MySpace users are carefree teenagers. Those who thrive on exploitation know that teens don't hesitate or question anything - they're on MySpace for fun not fear. They are "sitting ducks" - a computer crash waiting to happen.

It's disgraceful that these bad people - hackers, advertisers, spammers, etc. - are doing this and giving MySpace more of a bad name than it already has. Is anything safe anymore?

One more reason to justify blocking MySpace from my computers!

Here's my findings:

GOOD:

mspimped.com
profileaddict.com
myspacetweaks.info
profilemack.com
pimpmyarea.com
profiletoolkit.com

BAD:

tweakyourpage.com
profiletweaks.com
mylayoutscreator.com
spacemisc.com
myspacepranks.com
myspacegeeks.com
myprofilepimp.com
doobix.com
mycodesplus.com
gotomycodes.com
gazzump.com
acelayouts.com
myprocodes.com
mygirlyspace.com
hotprofileplus.com
blingpixie.com

Avoid the websites here on this list. BUT, this list is definitely NOT complete. Check every MySpace-related site before you click it with SiteAdvisor.

Better safe than sorry!
