I never thought much about teens on Facebook, but this story got me wondering; How young is too young for social networking?

Noticing a trend???
I had no idea the minimum age on these sites was so low. With no kids, I have never had a reason to look into the issue, and I guess I always assumed the minimum age was somewhere around 16. This is quite a revalation to me.
While I am a huge proponent of parental responsibility, I still have to wonder if 13 is too young for usership of these sites. I’d love to hear what you think about this…
