NEW YORK - MySpace, the youth social networking portal owned by News Corporation, is to unveil an internet survival guide starring '24' actor Kiefer Sutherland, aimed at parents to promote internet safety for children.

The centrepiece of the campaign, which was created by Common Sense Media, features Sutherland urging parents to closely monitor their children's internet usage.

Common Sense Media is providing a dedicated website, where parents can access a downloadable guide to safe internet usage and safety tip cards aimed at teenagers.
