I find other rude 3Rd party postings include:
Death notices and condolences unless it is common knowledge and family are aware and have posted first.
Birth notices and naming baby before the parents get a chance to announce it publicly.
Major celebrations that are Facebook invitations only.
Sent from my magical black talky thingy using BubHub
It's part and parcel of being on facebook.
I have to agree with Janesmum. If you've let the people in question photograph you or your kid then unless you specifically tell them what not to do with the photos then thats that really.
This is one of the many things I dont like about facebook, you have almost zero control over your own image.
Although it must be said, I find facebook fantastically stupid in a general sense because this is the kind of ridonkulous thing people get upset about.
Sorry, not trying to be rude. And im sure the people posting the photos weren't trying to be rude either. They probably just did what facebook people do and went ooh photos! Ill put them on facebook! and didn't think anything more of it.
Yes I also find it rude!!
I had something like this happen to me when I had my dd3!!
I had a booked c section and the only ppl who knew when it was booked for was my close immediate family!!
My mum was at work when I had her and my partner texted her as soon as she was born!! My cousin was with my mum so she found out too!!
Well after 2 long hours in recovery I finally was able to reveal to everyone that she had been born BUT logged into Facebook too see a big congrats from her on my wall to which everyone else had seen ;( and the. Also started with them!!
So my announcement basically didnt matter ;(
I was so upset and disappointed!!
For my circle of friends it's fine, it has never been an issue.
I would not post photos of people's kids I barely knew but if I'm close to the person I would put them up.
I wouldn't have people on fb I don't trust or am uncomfortable if they see my kids.
Im just answering the question that I don't find it rude. Like if my kids attended their friends birthday party (and I'm close to the parents) I would put the photos up on fb.
Just comes down to what works for you and how you are with the people close to you.
