The Washington Post had a great article about communication with your college student today:

I don't think that it's wrong to friend minors, but I do think that, as with any interaction with other people's children, there is a certain amount of risk involved for which one should be prepared.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any other way to monitor a kid's FB use, if that's what you want to do.

As a parent of a teen girl and teen boy, I've got to say that my son's fb feed is much raunchier than my daughter's. I don't do censorship, but I do supervise and discuss some of the topics posted. It's mostly just crude humor, but some of it is sexist too. He's 14, and I will monitor it probably for another year or so. I haven't logged into my daughter's fb account in several years, she's 16.
