WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Myspace social network settled charges that it misled millions of users about sharing personal information with advertisers, the Federal Trade Commission said on Tuesday.

The FTC settlement bars Myspace, owned by digital media company Specific Media, from future privacy misrepresentations and requires 20 years of independent reviews.
