    @sweetchiquita12:  I do not have a biological child yet, but I do have a stepdaughter.  My husband has NEVER posted any pictures of her on ANY social media, and when we have a child we will not post any either.  I am not sure what his reasoning is, but I have no problem supporting him.  

    HOWEVER, her mother, her uncle and her grandmothers post pictures of her.  As far as I know, my husband has never asked them not too.

    We do post photos of our daughter (but no ‘lady bits’ photos!) because we have a lot of out-of-town family and they enjoy seeing her.

    I have kids, I post photos. My FB is private. I don’t use their pictures for my profile picture or cover picture. Everyone on my friends list is family and close friends anyways, so it doesn’t matter.

    When I had my DD, I posted an enoemous amount of photos. Since then, I have really cut back. I deleted most of them, and made the rest only viewable by close friends and family.

    I just don’t want my poor child to have a million pictures of herself online without her say. She is her own person, even at 2, and I just think it’s kind of crappy of me to put tons of photos of her online for her to deal with when she’s older.

    @sweetchiquita12:  I don’t have kids yet but I would post their pictures on facebook.  My facebook is already private and I would make sure that only friends could see the pictures.

    I personally do not like to see pictures of half naked kids on facebook (my sister is guilty of this with my nephew).  So I would not put those on facebook.  I figure if I wouldn’t want to be on facebook in my underwear neither would my kids.

    @sweetchiquita12:  I think it’s a personal decision. One of my best friends has one private album for her son’s photos and she put a dislaimer on the photos that say “please don’t share these photos, I would like my son to have options internet wise”. IDK. I post them on mine of my son because I have lots of extended family on there that wouldn’t otherwise get to see all those photos of him. Nothing inappropriate or anything, school photos, baseball photos etc. I do get bothered though when I see parents post bath photos or things like that. I think that’s not something for the internet. I think we all have the cute naked bath photo lol but I just wouldn’t be posting it on the internet.

    I would like to post pictures of my baby on Facebook after she is born (my Facebook is private), but DH has asked me not to. He doesn’t have a Facebook, so I think he’s just uncomfortable and unfamiliar with the whole idea. I’m not going to fight him on it because he is her dad, and if he’s not comfortable with it, that’s his right.

    I do post pics of my kids on facebook.  But they are 8 &10 and I usually ask them before I do it.

    I would post some but limit the amount.  There are lots of women who post 60, 100+ photo albums every month.  That is just overkill.  There are not that many different and interesting pictures! It is TOO MUCH for me.

    I do have mine set to private and will probably make those albums even more private if I were to post kids.

    @sweetchiquita12:  I’ve spoken about this topic with my SO. While I love seeing pictures of other people’s kids on facebook (totally serious about that by the way) I don’t know if that’s what I want for my future kids. It makes me uncomfortable to think that someone could take their picture and use it however they want. If there was a way to make it really really private then I might be more comfortable with the idea.

    SO is more ok with it then me. We came to an agreement that we would post a limited amount of pictures and information online when the time comes (and no pictures of naked or semi-naked baby either). We’ll have to see how that goes when the time comes though.

    I do not have kids but I do plan on posting pics of them when they are babies.  After they are school age I plan to either not post pics of them once they are school age or if I do I will remove anyone from my FB page that is not close family and friends.  People have used FB pics of kids to find out info like their school name and info about their parents to kidnap them.  So I see everyone’s concern.

    I don’t have children but will not be posting photos on Facebook when the time comes. I don’t like that Facebook photos are never really gone (unless they fixed that cache issue, I haven’t really kept track of that). I see too many stories of people stealing baby pictures for fake blogs and accounts, just weirds me out that a picture of my child would be out of my control and their control.

    Just because someone is a baby doesn’t mean they don’t have the right to privacy.
