AUSTIN -- Monday's MySpace agreement outlining steps it will take to protect children from online sexual predators and bullies is signed by every state -- but Texas.
Attorney General Greg Abbott says he's not endorsing the agreement because it takes no action to verify people's ages.
MySpace, the popular online social networking site, said it will search for ways to better verify the ages of users.
But Abbott praised MySpace for its willingness to work with his Cyber Crimes Unit.
MySpace plans to create a task force of industry professionals to watch over its operations, and other social-networking sites will be invited to participate.
One 15-year-old girl from Texas allegedly was lured to a meeting, drugged and assaulted in 2006 by an adult MySpace user.
MySpace is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation.
