What do you all think?  I'm not looking to grab advice really, but it is something we're facing here.  Our ten year old would like her own Facebook account and at first I was like "heck no!" but the more I think about it - there are a lot of fun games she could play and several of her friends have their own accounts and would like to post/chat/play games with her. 

So what do you think?  Too dangerous?  Just fine with supervision?

times have changed........if you don't allow her, she will play at her friends' homes........i see this mess everywhere these days........new millennium kids barely play outdoors........computers have taken over their minds........let her create her account, no big deal.......just make sure you divert her towards something like dancing and gymnastics.......

I agree. If you tell kids there not allowed to do something they will go behind your back and do it

That's definitely a likely possibility considering the proliferation of computers in modern society these last few years.

You know, most of the people I know on Facebook now are adults and seasoned professionals! The majority of teenagers have jumped ship. I think back when this topic was first posted it would have made more sense for a kid to want a Facebook account. This short amount of time later, it's untrendy.

Trends all come and go. Some say the Internet itself may become obsolete in the future.
