Recently, my 8-year-old asked me if he could get a Facebook page. I said no -- well, I sort of said no -- I actually just changed the subject and he hasn't asked again. But I know he will ask again, and probably sooner than later.
Facebook requires a user to be at least 13 years old, but we know a handful of kids who are much younger and have pages. Hell, we know dogs and cats that have Facebook pages.
Both of my kids have been acutely aware of Facebook and Twitter for years now. "You gonna tweet that?" my son asks often. Or if I take a decent photo with my phone he says, "That's a good one. Put it on Facebook."
However, I think my kid is too young for Facebook right now, but I am trying to figure out what age I think is an appropriate one for him to enter the world of social media. You have any thoughts on this, parents?
