    I think it is 13, although I know LOTS of kids that are not 13 and have FB accounts. They are monitored closely by their parents.

    I think its 13, but that doesn't stop younger kids from lying about their age.

    Quote:VERY TRUE!

    And it is 13. Reason being is because of the cyberbulling, too young, etc.

    my older kids set up a FB account for my 9 year old daughter.

    I monitor it very regularly. No new 'friends' without our approval.

    I signed up for my Facebook account when I was 12. [​IMG] I made out I was a year older than I was. [​IMG]
    When I got older I didn't like to see the site declaring my age wrongly though, so I closed that one and made a new account. I felt like I was cheating somehow. [​IMG]

    My husbands nieces are 6 and 12 and have had accounts for 2 years. I am sure the parents have access to the accounts.
