At what age do you feel it is ok to let your kids on Facebook?

I let my kids have a shared account under my name, I sign them on and all of their information comes to my email. They use it to chat with grandparents and play games. My kids are 12,9 and 7. What age would you (did you) let your kids get on, if at all?

  • I have an account for my kids (who are 2 and 5) once they are able to write I will allow them to respond to comments or questions but letting them alone have their own accounts I am very uneasy with!

  • I wouldn't let them, there are too many creeps out there. I don't even have one.

  • 10 or 11, but with all the privacy settings up really high. And I must be their "friend" on there, so I know what they're up to!
