Myspacethe once mighty social network, has lost every single piece of content uploaded to its site beforeincluding millions of songs, photos and videos with no other home on the internet.

The more information they share, of course, the more information they're giving out to the general public, which is why in Chapter 5, we advise parents to remind teens to be very careful about the type of information they put out there.
