"Facebook is rooted in Universities and doesn't have the "sex predator" reputation.
ON the Contrary, According to the Attorney General Facebook is the dominion of hoardes of sexual predators, since they know they can get the person's real name and personal information off of Facebook. Myspace welcomes the use of nicknames, so they can't as easily get actual information, myspace keeps underage profiles private and unviewable, and unlike facebook, takes action.

Facebook Ignores Complaints about Sexual Predators
NEW YORK, NY (September 24, 2007) - Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced today that his office is investigating Facebook over representations the company makes about safety measures in place on its website. In a letter accompanying a subpoena for documents, Cuomo warned the company that a preliminary review conducted by his office revealed significant defects in the site's safety controls and the company's response to complaints - deficiencies that stand in contrast to the reassuring statements made on the website and by company officials.
In recent weeks, investigators from Cuomo's office have conducted a number of undercover tests of Facebook's safety controls and procedures. Posing as underage users, the investigators found they were repeatedly solicited by adult sexual predators on Facebook and could easily access a wide range of pornographic images and videos. Even more disturbingly, Facebook often did not respond, and at other times was slow to respond, to complaints lodged by the investigators
When undercover OAG investigators lodged complaints with Facebook regarding the inappropriate - and illegal - solicitation of the underage users, Facebook in many instances ignored the complaints and took no action against the reported sexual predators
Facebook is not only rife with predators, Facebook allows it and takes no action.
