Nope. You are the parent. She is 10. If she wanted to bungee jump off a building REALLY bad, would you cave??? Just because she wants something REALLY bad doesn't mean she automatically gets it. YOU are the parent. SHE is not the boss.

You are the parent and you can tell her no. Tell her that things like social media is for adults and not children. If you do not want her to have it then stand up to her on it. She can not demand you give in. She needs to learn that there are acceptable things for her age and unacceptable things for her age and this is one of them. Facebook requires the age of 13 before being on it but I would not allow that at 13 even.
