At what age will you let your kids get a facebook or myspace?

Does hearing about all the cyber bullying make you never want to let your kids get online at all? Or do you not think anything of it and still let your kids get online with no supervision.

  • My son went on Facebook at 11. All his friends have an account. I have his password and sign on as him everyday. He is now 15.

  • i used to be on aol when i was 11, before myspace or facebook. it was the social networking of the 90's. but things were different then, so i would probably allow it for my kids at 14. with them being in school, homework, and only one main computer that is in the living room, i dont see them getting in much trouble on the internet.

  • Never. Husband & I don't have them. Kids won't have them.

  • My daughter is 15 and she has Myspace. A friend created the account but we check her periodically. It's always good to know what your kids are up to.
