Child Predators on the Internet Statistics

Millions of Dr. Jekeylls and Mr. Hydes may have a key to your diary, and you've given it to them: Internet Memo

"The diary-like blog sites, or 'spaces,' on the Web make it easy for children and adults alike to post their electronic diaries. Potentially 750 million readers could read these daily journal entries. Federal authorities believe that at least 500,000 to 750,000 predators are online on a daily basis, constantly combing through these blog sites..." - By Clint Van Zandt MSNBC analyst & former FBI profiler

• Nine out of ten children aged between eight and sixteen have viewed pornography on the Internet. In most cases, the sex sites were accessed unintentionally when a child, often in the process of doing homework, used a seemingly innocent sounding word to search for information or pictures. - London School of Economics, January 2002

• Pornographic web pages now top 260 million and growing at an unprecedented rate. - N2H2, 9/23/03

• 345% increase in child pornography sites between 2/2001-7/2001. - N2H2 press release, 8/01

• Sex is the #1 searched for topic on the Internet. - Dr. Robert  Weiss, Sexual Recovery Institute, Washington Times 1/26/2000
