"News of kids on falling prey to after-school stalkers or creepy marriage offers has given many parents the chills about their own child's activities online.

As a result, questions like "How can I keep my child from MySpace altogether?" have become common among concerned parents. But like stopping any other teen fad, that option is a dicey proposition.

To answer some of the more common questions about social networks and blog safety, CNET talked to an expert. Larry Magid launched the site Blogsafety, a social network for parents, with partner Anne Collier, and he authored the forthcoming book "MySpace Unraveled: What It Is and How to Use It Safely," which will hit bookstores Aug. 2."
