It's never too early to warn your children of the dangers of binge drinking, drugs and facebook !

facebook is only as bad as the people they have on their timeline.

if you fill your timeline full of racists, bigots and idiots then it can only go one way, if you have just close friends and keep it private and just to keep in touch with people then it's a good thing to have.

why everyone above is slating facebook is beyond me, it's actually a good thing and has done some very good things for the world. Technophobes...

Glad it wasnt around when mine were young . Must be a nightmare trying to police it once they get to that stroppy secretive stage/age.

I actually quite like FB myself, mainly because Im interested --ok nosy -- about what other people are getting up to, but its a right time waster . I do think its risky for young people though. .

I think j_demo missed the point, it is about children using it. We her so much about them being bullied and also being groomed by adults posing as children. It is not a safe place for kids.

The reason I ask my son is 10 and he is wanting to sign up, I am not on Facebook but my wife and his older brother are, A number of his school friend have signed up so his is pestering us, I don't see it as a problem as my wife would be able to monitor what he is up too.

From Facebook UK's page
"To be eligible to sign up for Facebook, you must be at least 13 years old"

In other countries is may vary, I personally was concerned when my daughter-in-law allowed my grandaughter ( then 10) to join, as she then became aware her granddad was not as sweet as I purported to be !!
The internet and social sites can be a fantastic place of learning, but with children, it can also be a very dangerous place unfortunately

If I had my choice, the age limit would be 18yrs. Don't like what it can encourage in young lives and if children were not allowed on facebook, there may be a lot less perverts being able to groom kids.
It can be an evil tool, even if it can also be informative, although generally speaking, the same information can be found on other internet sites.
The children see their school friends all day, surely that is enough. Outside interests would be far more beneficial at such young ages and maybe expand their friends and experiences beyond the school playground.
I hope my grand children are not allowed to use it.
