    Should kids have a Facebook account?

    Do you think that children under the age of 13 should have a Facebook account? I think their parents should not allow them to have an account on a social media site at this age. At this age, kids are vulnerable, and strangers can influence them. I saw cases when girls send nude pictures to strangers, or got in love with some stranger and ran away from home! Sometimes girls meet a stranger on Facebook that makes her fall in love and does different stuff for him, to give him nude pictures or even to send them money.
    I think all this can be avoided if parents will not allow their kids to have a Facebook account!

    I don't support children under the age of 13 to have a facebook account, there are lots of uncensored things that a child below 13 or not even up to 18 should be exposed to at such age. Parents should always put under aged children under check.

    facebook allows anyone at the age of 13 years and above to have a facebook account. People under the age of 18 years are kids and I don't mind these kids using facebook. In fact, I have high opinion about allowing kids to use facebook. They can use this platform to speak their mind. However, I also believe that kids must be allowed to use faceboo under proper guidance. Lots if bad things happen on facebook and the children are always under the risk.

    I think its okay, just make sure you have a good relationship with your kids. What I noticed is that whatever you keep away makes it a must have and will be a reason why your kids will lie to you keeping an account in secret.

    I have a six year old, and I do not even post pictures of her online. My ex and I decided that this is a choice she should make, once she was informed enough to do so, and that she might resent us later, actually, for not respecting her inherent privacy as a child. That being said, I think it depends on the maturity level of the kid, but I would not consider letting my daughter have a facebook page, in principle, until she was at least thirteen, and even then, I would feel compelled to closely monitor her activity. There's just way too much potentially damaging stuff out there, and kids grow up way too fast as it is.

    I don't think kids under 13 should have a facebook account, first of all, it's not necessary, the social life of a child is based on school friends, family and maybe some other children in the neighborhood, in addition, they're not mature enough to make their own decisions yet so everything that they do needs to be acknowledged by their parents or the person responsible for them, they don't work at that age so they don't have a professional life, there is a responsible adult that provides for them, so I don't see the need of having a Facebook account at such young age, there are also some Facebook contents that aren't appropriated for kids and they are not mature enough to deal with that, there are dangerous games that lead children to commit suicide and pedophiles that recruited children on Facebook to do dirty jobs, most children won't recognize signs of danger because they're still very naive to understand that. So, in my opinion, adults are the ones who should have a facebook account, not children.

    Children under 13 years are not so mature, they can't decide what will the result of thing, one can easily make use of them, they can be easily entrap by someone.
    But we can allow children's account with linked with parent account. In guidance of parent they can use facebook, add their pics and video. The parent account should have all information about their each and every activity on facebook. I have two nephew, I created two accounts for them and use these accounts to upload their lovely and funny pics, but I will handle these accounts to them when they will be mature enough, even now elder one can upload pics and chat with relative their maternal uncle and cousins in front of me. But they don't have login access of their accounts now.

    I will discourage parents/guardians from letting children have a Facebook account. It would be hard for them to monitor their children's activities online, and some perpetrators use social media like the most popular Facebook. Encourage them to meet and socialize with new people and friends like everybody else first. Facebook can wait; they have to learn to be discerning to information that they might read on Facebook.

    Facebook is very dangerous for a very young age. Though, I think it's okay for them to have accounts as long as with full parental guidance. The parent should have an access to the acount of the kid and should frequently monitor it. But to end this. Facebook, again, is very dangerous. There are several cases of kidnapping and other really dark stuff happening. The best thing to do is to prevent it from happening by restricting and discouraging your kids from it.

    At the right age maybe. Social media specially facebook is very influential specially on kids. There is also a big chance that they might be bullied on facebook. It is best that parents should stress out the best and proper use of social media. Bare in mind, to make them responsible for what they post and with best regards to the public, as much as possible they should not be carried away with what they are thinking and behave properly and try not to offend anyone. Sometimes the things that you do on social media reflects what you are in reality. Some have serious consequences.

    I definitely agree with what you said "FACEBOOK CAN WAIT". This is the modern age but the more that we should have a higher level of discretion with regards to the safety of kids. Some kids are mature enough to handle a facebook account but you can't really tell so I do not recommend parents to allow underage children for a social site. Better be safe than sorry.

    Teach children to build more genuine relationships through social activities with their peers. When they are already of the right age, then I believe they would be more responsible in joining in an online community.
