The next time you decide to plot the kidnapping of your neighbor’s kid for beer money, you may want to re-think what you’re doing: MySpace is now equipped to send out AMBER alerts for missing children. With increased pressure from activist groups and concerned parents, MySpace has partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children so that whenever a critical child abduction case has occurred, an AMBER alert bulletin will appear on the site.

And let’s face it, after enjoying TO CATCH A PREDATOR about 20 times over, there’s obviously a need for this. Kudos to you, MySpace, for making progress towards the greater good.
