Some British parents may rest easier knowing that their teens can add a new safety feature to their profile page -- a "panic button."

If someone suspicious or potentially abusive contacts the kid on the popular social networking website, they can click the tab.

What do you think of the "panic button"? Do you think this option should be available to American kids/teens too?

I wonder how many kids would hit it out of spite or as a prank?
