Facebook is the #1 location for my stepson to get in touch with every single one of his friends. This is basically the current model of calling up your friends to talk on the phone. No one does that anymore with their friends. Facebook chatting is the way to do so. It is ALSO going to be the main location for chatting, and flirting with boys.
I suggest you have her add you on Facebook, so that you can teach her about proper social media etiquette. If you are not on Facebook, do some research as there are many danger, as well as benefits of being connected in such a way.
Why would she be under the impression that you wont let her have one? OR, did it maybe just not occur to her as being a big deal?

Probably because 1) every one ELSE has one(said with the teenage eyeroll and exasperated sigh), and 2)she's old enough by FB standards to have one.

Ask her why she felt that she needed to hide that from you, and present her with some consequences for that.

She did it because all her friends have one and she knew you would say no? Just guessing, but as a teacher of kids this age, this seems to be the common reason.
