How Young is Too Young for Facebook? [Poll]

It’s a fact, kids want to be on Facebook, at least until they get embarrassed when their parents start tagging them in everything.  Facebook’s minimum age is 13 (and of course kids never lie to get one sooner).  How old do you think a child should be before they get a Facebook profile?

A lot of parents see Facebook as a sea of pedophiles and crazies, and some think that they can protect their children from such garbage.

Sodahead recently did a survey where they asked the public this same question.

Of the respondents, 5% said 7 to 9 years old, 13% said 10 to 12, 34% said 13 (which is Facebooks current minimum), 29% responded with the answer 14 to 17 years old, and 19% said that the minimum age should be 18 years old.

What do you think… How young is too young for Facebook?
