How old should my child be before they get facebook?

My child wants to get facebook. I really don't want her too. But, just in case I agree to it, should there be a special age limit other than how old you have to be to get it? And should my child really get facebook? thank you for answering my two questions.

  • How old are they and do you have one. I think 16 is a good age

  • Facebook has an age limit set - yes there are ways around it, but technically you're supposed to be entering high school (so 14, give or take a year) to be eligible.

  • I wouldn't let my child to have one, not even a 16 year old. It's too dangerous and too risky. I know adults that don't even have the common sense to know what to post and what not to post. My kids are young, but I can't see myself letting any of them have a facebook account.
