Parents need to be involved, put the computer where you can see it. Don't give kids things like Ipod's that they can access the internet from. This a parental issue too. Your kids may not like you whe you tell them they can't have a Faceboo, My Space or an instant message account but that is what being a parent is about, allowing what is safe and denying what isn't. We log all our kids messages and while we don't read every one, we do periodically review them to make sure they are working within the guidlines we have established for them. If they prove responsibility with one then SLOWLY move to the next.

I feel badly for her parents and for this child, if there is a predator out there they will find the vulnerable.
