MocoSpace the largest American mobile social networking site with at least 11 million users is designed for a mobile device. It includes features such as mobile chat, instant messaging, photo and video sharing, blogs and forums. With this in mind, MocoSpace pays special attention to its users and safety features that potentially will protect them.
When looking at user safety, MocoSpace with the assistance of the Internet Safety Technical Task Force takes this very seriously. Here are just a few safety tips that MocoSpace asks its users to beware of. Users must report any unsafe or offensive behaviour, they have to be honest in relation to their age and if found to be under 18 the account will be deleted by MocoSpace.
The profile must not include personal information such as an email address, phone number or mailing address. Privacy settings need to be adjusted so only friends can access your information. Cyberbullying, if found to be serious, will result in the user’s account being deleted and possibly prosecution.
For users particularly teens, this information applies to them as well. Other safety tips include accepting friend invitations from only people you know and trust and above all, the advice from MocoSpace and all social networking sites is not to meet anyone in real life that you have only spoken to online.
The Internet Safety Task Force carried out a recent study which concluded that everyone can be put in danger, particularly young people. It can be in the form of bullying, being sexually accosted or being exposed to inappropriate content.
