The Darker Side of Posting Your Baby’s Pics on #SocialMedia

OK folks, I read an interesting article which is a tech related article. Someone whom I follow talks and writes and shares about protecting children and cyberbullying and other topics. This time, we learn about The Darker Side of Posting Your Baby’s Pics on #SocialMedia and it is something to think about.

The article talks about an 18-year-old suing their parents about their pictures online when they were young. These types of pictures can be anything from sleeping, to anything else. These photos apparently are on facebookk, or other social media.

“They knew no shame and no limits,” the anonymous woman said to the Austrian newspaper
The Local
. “They didn’t care if I was sitting on the toilet or lying naked in the cot, every moment was photographed and made public.” The case will be taken to court in November, and will likely stir up a dialogue: When is it — and isn’t it — appropriate to post photos of your kids on Facebook?”

There are links within this and it is something to talk about. Since I don’t care much about pictures, I know i would not be taking pictures of my kids, no matter what they were doing.

I think now a days, we are needing to think about whether our kids should have their pictures taken, no matter what. In today’s world, anything can be published, so maybe I’d think twice about having pictures taken, even in the yearbook, unless I had a talk to the school about privacy and their intent with the pictures.

When we grew up, digital media was not around, even saving pictures on the phone was large files that couldn’t easily be put somewhere else. Now, it can be done, and this should be the topic. Thoughts?
