BOSTON — The popular social networking Web site Facebook has agreed to impose strict new rules on users aimed at protecting children from online predators.
The agreement announced yesterday by Attorney General Martha Coakley comes on the heels of a similar pact reached between MySpace and 49 states in January that law enforcement officials hope will make it harder for Internet predators to make contact with minor children.
