    The 13 age comes from the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

    Even after that age, it’s really important to monitor what your kid is doing online – just as you would/should in “real life.” Just search “sexual predators on facebook” and you’ll find many horribly-ending stories of serial sexual predators using Facebook to find potential victims.
