Should adults accept Facebook friend requests from young kids?

In case you didn’t catch it last week, I posted my first piece for HuffPost DC. So often we talk about the need to protect children from predators online, and obviously I agree with that completely, but in my first piece, I wanted to explore the potential pitfalls of accepting a young child’s Facebook friend request, especially because so many children under the age of 13 are joining Facebook (in fact, data shows that 7.5 million under 13 have accounts). I’d love for you to read it and see what you think.
