  • To make it easier for pedophiles to locate and target them?

    Honestly, they don't. Not at all. It's completely inappropriate.

  • My son will not have one at 7. That is just nuts, sucking them into the wrong thing. once your hooked on computeres its over. My sons life will not revolve around a website, its bad enough I have one. lol. thats mainly cause its free to talk to my family (which is VERY large). but NO I would not allow him to have one. He is 6 he will be a 6 yr old playing outside, reading, and so on :)

  • Not in this lifetime. I have issues with 13 and 14 yr olds having them.

  • There would be NO WAY i would let my DS at 7 have a facebook or any other social networking site! That is way too young

  • I wouldn't even let my 15 year old have a facebook or any sort of social networking site. Seven is definately way too young. Then again people make them for their pets and their infants anymore.

  • I know a few kids that have had one at about 8, I just don't think it's necessary- it really bothers me actually....

  • hahaha i guess everyone needs a facebook these days... but i wouldn't let my child even at that age have a facebook, twiter, myspace.. whatever...

  • Absolutely NOT and TOS for Facebook states the age as 13! The mother is teaching her child to lie and cheat by making a facebook page for them.
