Web 2.0 for the Under 13s crowd http://mgleeson.edublogs.org/2012/07/05/web-2-0-for-the-under-13s-crowd/ Web 2.0 for the Under 13s crowd
The difficulty with some sites’ policies is that they don’t all state emphatically that Under 13s are not allowed.
They just refer vaguely to not being intended for use or not knowingly seeking personal information from Under 13s.
In some cases we have personally contacted sites to confirm their policy. I recommend you do the same – I’m not a lawyer; I’m just expressing my opinions.
The links here generally take you to the Policy or FAQ sections to explain use/non-use by students under 13.

All Things Digital http://allthingsd.com/ All Things Digital ... a Web site devoted to news, analysis and opinion on technology, the Internet and media. But it is different from other sites in this space.
It is a fusion of different media styles, different topics, different formats and different sources.
Because the site is wholly owned by Dow Jones, publisher of The Wall Street Journal, we aim to adhere to the journalistic standards of the best of the mainstream media. But, because it is run autonomously as a small online start-up, we aim to exhibit the fresh thinking and nimbleness of the best of the new media.
We want to be first, and sassy, but also well sourced and accurate. We will offer lots of opinion and analysis, but plenty of fact as well.
