The 24-year-old Dublin man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, used a false name and claimed to be 19 when he requested a friendship with the teenager on Bebo.
He later admitted to her that he had used a false name and photograph but then became friends with the victim on another site and swapped phone numbers.
A number of text messages, some of a "sexual nature", were exchanged before he arranged to meet the girl outside his local supermarket.
He has pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to two charges of defilement of a child at his home on April 29 last year.
