When is too early to FB?

I have a modern dilemma- one of my son's little buddies wants to "friend" me on FB. I'm thinking...no......Nooooo...NOOOO! (or at least not until I get my privacy settings really fine tuned.)

Anyhow, I'm thinking 9 is awfully young to have a FB account- (thankfully my 9 year old has no interest in Social Media, yet...but it's coming!) What do you think? is there a "magic age" when social media use is appropriate? 
I almost always err to the side of keeping my child innocent as long as possible, limiting computer use is at the top of my list.
Nooooo, I'm not saying that using computers is bad (that would be pretty hypocritical of me, FB group girl) I'm simply trying to get an idea of how my son's generation is digesting modern technology.

No way. Too young. My daughter is going to be 10 next month. At some point I know I'm going to have to let her do it, and be her friend so I can spy on her! But then I sort of lose a little piece of freedom myself...it's nice to communicate with just adults sometimes!
