The minimum age to register an account on MySpace is 14.
Profiles with ages set from 14 to 15 years are automatically private. Users whose ages are set at 16 or over have the option to set their profile to public viewing. Accessing the full profile of, or messaging someone when their account is set to "private" (or if under sixteen) is restricted to a MySpace user's direct friends. MySpace will delete these profiles if the someone verifies their identity and points out the profile via e-mail.
Beginning in late June 2006, MySpace users whose ages are set over 18 could no longer be able to add users whose ages are set from 14 to 15 years as friends unless they already know the user's full name or email address.
Some third party Internet safety companies like Social Shield have launched online communities for parents concerned about their child's safety on MySpace.
MySpace has different regional versions. The alternative regional versions present automated content according to locality (e.g. UK users see other UK users as "Cool New People," and UK oriented events and adverts, etc.), offer local languages other than English, or accommodate the regional differences in spelling, idioms and conventions in the English-speaking world.
