  • My brother is 9 and has had a Facebook page for over a year. He just plays the games on there and has family members on his friends list. My dad & stepmom check it out all the time, watch to make sure no weirdos are sending odd friend requests. I even have his login/password & will occasionally check it myself.

  • My kids were all 13 before we let them sign up on Facebook. They're not allowed to access Myspace on our home computer. It's in the living room so they can't get on it privately and they don't have computers in their rooms. Can't be too careful these days. BTW, the TOS are there for a reason and letting your child have a page when they're younger is foolish.

  • We set up a special faccebook page for our family with DD's pics and videos. It's for close friends and family only. So we don't bombard people we work with with pics of our kid. Plus, our family account it private. She's 3 months.

  • I was fourteen when I got my first MySpace page. Maybe thirteen, but I really don't see a reason for anyone younger than that.
