    Default Would You Mind If A Family Member Posted Photos Of Your Child On Facebook

    My sister recently had a baby girl, my aunty and close friends sent me messages on FB asking for me to post pictures as my Aunty lives in another state and we rarely see her.

    I posted two pics of my gorgeous neice on FB and my aunty called thanking me and saying how much she appreciated it. not even an hour later i got another phone call from my BIL saying "i see you have a picture of my daughter on FB, i want it removed now. i dont want any photos of my kids on there"

    i agreed (but still havent gotten aroound to deleting the photos) then after i got off the phone i had a look on FB at other family members pages and realised they had pictures of my sisters other three kids.

    i really dont see the problem in posting photos of children on FB! my privacy settings are set really high and i dont mind it when my friends put my DS on there. strangers look at him everyday weather i like it or not! (if that makes sense??)

    would you have a problem with a family member posting photos of your child?

    No I wouldn't, but I understand that some people don't like it so I don't post photos of other peoples' kids. I often get my sister or whoever to post photos of my kids from their camera or phone because I can't.

    i've had friends throw hissy-fits - so when the children aren't mine, i only give access to select friends (and i still get initial permission from the people)

    i would get a bit annoyed if it was a family member and they let other people post about their other children, but got cranky when i did it, personally
    can you explain that mutual family are the only people who have access to those photo's?

    i try to be quite conscious of who has access to childrens photo's on my account and i wouldn't necessarily be entirely ok with other people putting pictures of my children up - especially not without checking with me that it was ok, and giving me the right to say 'take it down' (yes, i know they could just block me from seeing them - but i have to trust the people in my life a little bit )

    That's a good question. I'm not sure how I'll feel about it when my baby is born. I often post pics of friend's kids but I can understand why many parents might not want photos of their children online.

    I don't care (most of my pics r of my kids) but I understand why some people don't like it. I put pics of friends/family's kids but would happily remove if asked to.

    I don't mind, if I know that they have their privacy settings high. I can understand why some don't like it though, and would not post pics of friends kids without their permission. I do post pics of my nephew, but only friends can see the photos and my sister often tags herself in them anyway (so that her friends all see the photos), so she clearly doesn't mind. My nephew is the only child other than DS that I would ever put up on facebook.

    I wouldn't appreciate it without prior discussion...

    I have told DH that he isn't to have any photos of our bub on his page as I don't know many of his friends and a few I do know I don't trust at all and find them creepy and don't want them to have access to our babys picture (all the people who we would send a photo to are on my page too so it's not as though I'm snubbing his friends but still)

    It's not a case of showing someone a photo anymore and that's it but people can copy and save and do all sorts of things with ppls facebook photos now

    Paranoid maybe but it's my right as a mother to have control over the distribution of my babys photos

    Yes I would have a problem if a family member put a picture of DD on their FB. In fact after my Mother and Sister uploaded photos I contacted them and asked them to remove them straight away. There are many reasons that DH and I feel this way. For one I can't control their privacy settings or who they add as friends. Neither DH or I have pictures of DD on our FB page or in our profile pictures. DD has her own FB page and we have told people that we are the only people who will upload pictures and they will be uploaded to this page only.

    i forgot 2 mention that BIL is a total cocky person.. when my sis did have the baby he was SOO rude to everyone who visited! then my sis moaned because everyone stopped visiting her!

    i think its just some people hate the idea of facebook altogether! Some only use it for gossip and other use it for trouble making!
