Of Course It Is, They Are The Main 'Culprits'
Educating children better than banning sex offenders on social media in Canada: Online Child Safety Advocate
"Educating children is a better way to protect them from online predators than banning sex offenders from social media sites or forcing them to disclose their crimes on social networks, says an online-safety spokeswoman.
Merlyn Horton was commenting after recent moves in the U.S. to use legislation to crack down on Internet sex predators.
In Indiana last week, a federal judge upheld a law banning registered sex offenders from accessing social networking sites used by children, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and others.
In Louisiana, legislation has been passed requiring sex offenders to list their crimes in their social networking profiles."
