As we know that Social Networking is the cool thing amongst youth people like me today, in India and elsewhere in the world. But in the recent past, people have gotten duped, harassed, verbally assaulted, and even sexually abused by chatting through IMs in chatrooms and also via webcams.

We should thanks to the social networking site's policy that they don't demand any real-life identification while registration, it becomes difficult to trace the accused after a case of sexual abuse is filed. Today, sex offenders have taken to popular sites like MySpace, Orkut, Xanga, Bebo, Facebook, and others.

A recently-reported case was that of Judy Cajuste(14 years old) who met a 20 year old male through MySpace, and who was later murdered.

According to Essex County Executive Assistant Prosecutor Charlotte L. Smith.
On Jan. 13, the girl with scores of friends, dozens of dreams and only 14 years of life experience was found in a dumpster in Newark’s Weequahic Park. She had been strangled to death.

In the Similar way, MySpace has been facing a number of problems like identity theft, information revelation by kids below 14, inappropriate material posting, and more. In the US, eight attorney generals of various states sent a letter to MySpace demanding the details of a "few thousand" registered sex offenders. MySpace recently agreed to release their database of sex offenders profile.

Can such a situation be faced in your country too? You did think not, but it could well be. Be it cyber cafe, school, college, or home, young people are increasingly taking to social networking sites.

In our country India, such a case was reported about a Delhi girl wherein a spurned lover posted obscene messages on Orkut terming her a "Sex Teacher" along with her contact details. In Mumbai, a rejected lover in real life made a fake profile of the girl who spurned him, and posted messages on Orkut using pictures of the girl. So don't you get scared by this activities going on?

As more and more people are joining the online space, the potential of them being abused have increased a lot. India-based networking sites like Yaari, Minglebox, Fropper, Rediff Connexions, and other have cropped up recently. Many have posted personal details in their public profiles on such sites. What the kids, teens, and even adults are doing is providing an open invitation to crank calls and obscene demands by offender's.

Have a look at the list of the Social Networking Websites.

Spurned lovers find a place to hangout at such sites, while predators look for sexual innuendos at such networking sites. Many have forgotten that their "scraps" are accessible by anyone. It's not a pretty picture that you show off to the world.

By reading the above article, you might be thinking. What should be done to avoid or stay away from the sex offenders on the web? I thought of writing myself about few advices about this but before that I stumble upon a site by Mahendra Palsule where he have written very clearly about it. Actually he has written about Indian situation but it is applicable to all the countries. Read it here.

If you have some more news or ideas about such a cases through Social Networking and ideas of staying away from such an offender on the Social Networking, you can share it here. If it has a strong point then I might put another post linking to you and your blog.
