"Am I wrong to completely disallow social media for my 9 year old?"

What age do you think is appropriate for social media use? Should younger children be allowed to have social media accounts? It's very common these days and the Tips on Teens question this week comes from a parent wondering if disallowing social media might create some alienation from friends. Here's the question:

"I’m curious about how limiting or prohibiting social media use effects kids. I have a 9 year old and I don’t let her have any social media accounts. I’m a little worried that this might be alienating her from her peers who seem to use all sorts of different social media platforms, however, I personally believe social media is quite detrimental for kids. Am I wrong to completely disallow social media?"
