MySpace has begun posting alerts on member home pages. The home page is the private page where members get their messages and click links to edit and update their friends and make bulletin board announcement pages, etc. There are reports that the notification started in January 2007, but this is the first AMBER ALERT on Myspace that The Cardinal has sighted.
A notice shows there is an AMBER ALERT with a link to expand to see the information in the upper left corner. Here is the first notice posted for the Chicago Area:
