California sex offenders may soon have to disclose their social-networking information to law enforcement officials, in addition to residential addresses.

Senate Bill 57, introduced by state Sen. Sharon Runner, R-Antelope Valley, and passed today by the California Senate, would require convicted sex offenders statewide to give Facebook, MySpace or other social-networking sites’ account information in their required annual registration.

“Social networks have become a central part of our children’s lives, and sex offenders are going there to lure them,” Runner said in a prepared statement. “Just as they have to register their physical whereabouts, it follows that they must also make known where they go in cyberspace.”
