I found out by accident that my 12yr old made a facebook account. She used a different name, set up a different email account. We had had the talk about no facebook etc., until I thought she had become responsible enough. I went through the roof! I friended her, and she just about died. I made her delete the page, it is still there but inactive, and we set up a real page, with me having as much info that I could think of asking for.
I then did some detective work and found she had a myspace and had aged 3 years. I had her delete that one. I have asked if there is anything else out there, no was the answer. Do I believe her? No, It makes me feel truly sick that they have all these ways of getting around us. She is a great student, friendly, artistic and articulate, and usually trustworthy. This is their world, not ours, we are learning it, they are living it. It is scary.
