    Default Photos of your children on Facebook

    Just want others opinions on this. I have a family member that always posts photos of my child on Facebook and it drives me nuts. I have asked them not to do it and it still happens.
    I'm careful with my own security settings and don't allow randoms to see photos of my child so I don't get why people think its ok to post photos of your child without your permission.
    Am I alone in hating this?

    I don't mind at all, it's just a photo ??

    But each to their own.

    It doesn't bother me personally as I post a lot of photos of my daughter myself. However if I was in your position I'd say something like "seeing as though you won't respect my wishes about not putting photos of my child on FB, I no longer want you to even take any photos of him / her". It's completely rude that they would ignore your request, so be just as rude back to them!

    I very rarely post photos of my kids. Probably once per 6 months.

    I don't like doing it for privacy reasons, and as it enters the public domain I don't want them reused by some random person for anything.

    So yes, id be ticked if family members did it without asking if I minded.

    Yup I'd b peeved. I rarely post public photos of dd myself... Really they don't have the right to continue posting photos of others people's children if they have been told not to.... Id report the photos. I'm possibly a little more anal about privacy due to the field I was working in before dd was born and not living in a massive town!

    I'd be so annoyed if you've asked them not to and they are still doing it!

    Any photos of my DD on fb are in private folders with limited people who can view them

    I would be annoyed. I don't post pictures of my son on Facebook for specific reasons and if someone else was posting them I would have something to say to them. Especially if you've already said something to them!

    I think your position is perfectly valid OP. FB has really complicated things because you almost have to avoid having any photos taken (you or your children) if you don't want them to find their way to Facebook.

    I would take it up with them again and explain why you're not comfortable with it. Also explain that any photos you load are restricted - they might not realise & think that if your doing it, then it's ok?

    One thing I've realised is that everyone has a different level of comfort with what they do/don't share on FB.

    Yes OP, if you have asked them not to and they continue despite (very rude and disrespectful IMO) I'd report them when they do do it - I think there's a report function on FB??

    I'm in two minds on this issue - certain friends/family, totally fine especially if its a bunch of our kids together.... But individual somewhat intimate photos of DS, no way and if any of my family did that I'd be annoyed - it isn't their right iykwim.

    I post LOADS of pictures of my kids...and have no issues with others. BUT, had i asked someone not to then i would be angry and i would block them from seeing my pictures and make it hard for them to take pictures.

    I have very strict rules on what is posted of my kids...no topless shots, nothing that would ever embarrass them when they are older, nothing that could be misrepresented. If anyone ever posted pictures that i did not like I would bring it up and delete their pic's straight away.
