    Default Don't want kids photo's on other people's Facebook page...

    I need a good study to support my argument in this. I've just had the hugest almighty row because it casually came up that I don't want my Dad or Stepmum posting photos of my kids. A few reasons. . 1) They are both social networkers and have over 1000 friends between them. 2) They have open pages with no privacy settings 3) my Stepmum particularly puts photos more to say look what a great grandmother/Stepmum I am when she is just not. She had her and my daughter on her profile photo. There was close on 100 likes and comments. I knew 4 of those people. Anyway, it came up. Huge fight. I was told off about photo's I post ( very carefully selected, never of anyone else's kids and I have about 3 friends and have just created a private group of just family and 2 friends...and most importantly my kids! So they deleted every photo and unfriended me but I'm still in the wrong. I need some kind of study to show many parents feel this way. All my friends do. My dad is an academic and might actually take notice if there is good piece of writing on the issue. All I can find is things on forums and blogs. Can anyone help? And please. ..no comments about if they should be on or not. I'm done to death on the topic! TIA.

    I'm sorry I don't have any research to help you but I just wanted to offer you support, I've been in that exact same argument and it sucks and is extremely frustrating!

    I don't know any studies etc but there have been a few of those 'look how far a photo travels' FB posts that I've seen where its amazing with sharing and diff people commenting etc exactly how many people end up seeing a photo. Maybe try and find one of those?

    It's so crazy. Their reaction is irrational. I'd be mortified if a parent asked me not to and I had been. Not that I'd ever dream of doing that in the first place.

    Funny I should see this. I am about to ask permission from some school mums to post video from a school assembly, so family can see it, for this reason.

    I'm not fussed either way but still understand others might be.

    Yes it is so irrational, I would be mortified too! I really don't understand why some people think that because a picture is digital, the etiquette surrounding it's use should be any different than a physical picture. You wouldn't take a picture of someone else's child, get a hundred copies made then go handing them out to all your friends and acquaintances.

    I did suggest they set up a private group of family and friends that I know as well but they were so busy telling me off they wouldn't listen. They accept every single friend request they are sent!

    At least you are going to ask. At least you are even thinking to ask!

    I dont know of any literature but I just want to say I totally agree with you on this. My mil loves to share my kids photos off my wall so now I just hide them from her.
