    Default Etiquette - facebook photos

    So, am I the only person who figures it must be incredibly bad mannered and bad etiquette to go posting photos of a bride and groom or new baby on Facebook.... BEFORE the happy couple/new parents??

    i find it so rude! seriously...it does not take a genius to realise that it is just basic manners to let the parents/bride and groom have the "big reveal"

    Not really. If you attended the wedding and took photos then what's the problem with uploading your own photos on fb?
    Its not like the the wedding was a secret.
    As for the baby if you allow a person to take photos of your baby then surely they can upload those photos. Unless the baby is a secret or something.
    Its just not an issue for me.
    Maybe if you find it rude ask people not to upload photos of you on fb?

    You misunderstood me. I am talking about FIRST posting... Before the parents or bride and groom have even had a chance to post their own.

    Yeah I think it should definitely be up to the bride and groom or parents to make the big reveal!

    First photos of baby is rude.

    Weddings are a free for all as the bride/groom won't have time to put them up for ages.

    No I understand it's just not rude to me.
    If someone attended your wedding and then uploaded photos the next day it's just not a big deal to me. I think people would have known about the wedding.
    Im not fussed that's all.
    It's just fb which isnt a big deal to me it's not like I would have a million dollar deal with New Idea for exclusive wedding pics.
    It's someones personal wall they can upload what they want.
    If it was a big deal tto me I would just ask people not to post them.

    Look I can see why parents of a new baby might like to post the first photos of their baby but, really, if they didn't want photos posted by others they can easily say so when visitors take photos.

    And as for weddings, I'd be stoked as a bride if I woke up the day after my wedding to find photos already posted.
