I'm curious. In Denmark we currently have a huge discussion in the media regarding privacy and photos of children online. Now that it is summer, photos of children at the beach in their swimsuit (or without clothes) are flodding Facebook and other public social media channels.
A Danish Childrens Fund is now warning all parents from posting photos of their children in public fora, saying that the photos are likely to be used by pedophiles. They are also arguing that the children should have a saying in what material they would want to be "confronted with" when they grow up...
I have created the Family app, Filihood.com for the purpose of providing a "safe" and closed space for all memories of our children. Sharing ONLY with your closest family and friends...by invite only...I believe it is needed..
But what is your take on this issue?
ARE YOU COMFERTABLE SHARING PHOTOS OF YOUR CHILDREN ONLINE?
This is a very good question. I rarely, if ever, talk about my daughters. They are 14 and 17 now and I may have shown their photos 10 times on the Internet and that was mostly on Facebook on a list of friends and family.
Love this post! I don't care for showing pictures of my children on social media for those same reasons. Thanks for sharing this!
I agree I don't refer to my children by name or post their photos online. There are too many worries to list and I have educated my oldest daughter (14) about what she puts out there. The other two are too young for social media yet, but we've had many discussions about what can and cannot be share on servers for Minecraft, etc.
