Social Networking and Kids

I logged into my Facebook this morning and noticed a somewhat surprising friend suggestion.  Facebook suggested I friend my cousin’s 7 year old son.  My cousin and his family live in South America, so maybe social mores are different there, but I was very shocked to see that a 7 year old had a Facebook account, which included personal pictures.  I can’t imagine my children having Facebook accounts until they’re in junior high at least.

This leads me to wonder…are kindergarteners also on Facebook?  Are there preschoolers on Chat Roulette?  Toddlers on Twitter?   Let’s hope not.
