Jerry Rizzo - My 12-year-old cousin has been expressing his desire to have his own Facebook account for some time now, and being the only social media enthusiast in my family I feel that I could be his best or worst advocate. He’s a good kid and I think with some strong governance he should be allowed to have his own Facebook account. I’m looking for some advice here. What do you all think? At what age is it suitable for a kid to begin social networking?
