My 10 year old son does not.. he is not mature enough... He would add anyone as a friend..

If your's does not when will you allow them to have one or will you ever?

I told my son he could have one when he is 13 or 14 (whenever facebook allows you to have one)

My husband doesnt think he should ever have one.. but he hardly uses facebook himself..

My son has a FB account. I don't usually admit it on CM because he is under 13 and people on CM tend to get judgmental about this issue.

He uses his FB account less than I do, and he only has people that he knows in real life as friends. It is mainly family members that live in another state. We've gone over and review often social networking safety, including when he uses his Xbox Live account.

Nope. The 13 y/o, while old enough, does not, either. #1- He hasn't asked for one. #2- I don't think he's mature enough yet for one.

They got FB accounts on their 13th birthday. Even though we felt they were mature enough before then we also felt strongly that we needed to set an example and "follow the rules".  So we waited until they were 13 when FB rules allow an account.  They are not huge users of it and we monitor their activity online regularly.  But if they had wanted to try the argument that "all my friends have FB accounts" they would have been right! LOL  (Not that it would have swayed our opinion but it would not have been an arguable point because they all did.)

No. She is only 8.

When you said he will add everyone, I saw my friend's daughter's page....public page....with about 600 "friends". the girl is about 13. Really?

Not until they are the LEGAL age for the site. And even then I will decide whether or not they should have an account.
