Does your tween have a Facebook account?

My 12 year old niece has one and my 12 year old son wants one.  I won't give in and allow him to have one before he's 13.

Does your child have one?  How old was s/he when they got it?

 No, he does not, and no, he will not. He's only 9. He hasn't asked for one, anyway.

No. I have two Tweens 12 and 8, they do not have a Facebook account.

Nope , my children aren't 13 yet. When they turn 13 we will reevaluate.

Nope, he's only 11 & thankfully hasn't asked...I'm not sure when I'd let him have one

My dd is 13 and just got hers last weekend. She wanted it to keep in touch with friends that she can't text or call outside of school. They have ipods but no phones so it works well. I am loving it cause they message her like crazy and she can't keep up!! So funny. :)

10 year old has shown no interest with social webistes at all.  12 year old is on Instagram a lot, but hasn't recently asked about FB.  I would like to hold off until high school for that, but not sure.  As far as I know none of his friends have it yet - they just spend their time texting and on Instagram.

Nope. And neither does my teen.

My dd (11) wanted to get on fb but I haven't let her. There's so much bullying on there. I was able to sign her up on pinterest so she seems to be much happier with that :)

Nope. He's asked, but I've said no every time.

My DS is 11 and has his account, he only uses to keep in touch with the family and friends back in Mexico, and he certainly does not use it too much.
