@anongirl89:  I think any of that stuff is cheesy and lame. I don’t care about people’s pregnancies. I hate that game going around right now where people list facts about their pregnancy – TMI and I don’t care!

*shrug* I think it’s cute and I enjoy seeing them. I haven’t had any kids yet and I’m not sure if we will but I probably won’t do this. Not because I don’t like it but rather because I’m not terribly creative or artistic with things like that.

I’m in this ship: Whatever floats everyone’s boat!

Some people are into story-telling using pictures. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of corny and cheesy, on top of uber cute.

My FI and I have mutually agreed to keep our (future) kids’ pictures away from Facebook. They don’t need all that social pressure to be perfect. I don’t post pet pictures on Facebook either. It probably could annoy people for the uber cuteness, like everything else.

@anongirl89:  I think it’s cheesy, overdone, and I’m tired of seeing them in my FB feed.  Pregnancy chalkboards are the worst “Baby lastname is a boy!”  I’m actually pretty tired of chalkboards for anything.  Props are also getting pretty bad- like at Halloween, I saw four different babies in pumpkins- it’s not creative or unique when everyone does it.  Why can’t people just take normal pictures of their kids?

Yeah, I hated it whenever either parent bragged about me as a kid. This was the era before social media; ahem, 1990s. I remember flatly saying to my mom or my dad: Thanks for being proud of me, but I don’t like to be compared with other kids. (I was already having a tough time for being made fun of for being different in school.)

I cannot see how my kids would like it because they’d probably feel like their life would end in moments when they failed short of everyone’s supposed expectations. Kids must learn that failing is okay — they don’t need their successes documented every moment publicly.

It also made us think that if people wanted to know our kid more, they can visit us or Skype with us. It should be fun being millenial parents! I just hope others can respect us by also not putting pictures of our kids on Facebook, but we can only go as far as expressing our wishes.

I really like seeing the fruit pictures. I live pretty far away from most of my friends and family though so maybe that’s why I seem to feel differently than the other bees on here and love seeing those pictures.

If you don”t like seeing photos and updates of people’s lives why are you facebook friends? That is the point of facebook after all….

I just hide their feed… So when I do want to see their cute kids, I can just go see on my own time and catch up, not have to see their new photo post every 17 minutes… lol

I don’t mind seeing them for the most part, but in retaliation, I’ve posted my kitty, “First Thanksgiving for Kitty” and “KITTYS FIRST CHRISTMAS ” lol.

I just graduated college two years ago and my Facebook has gone from party pictures to ultra sounds, baby bumps and chalk boards. I really don’t care what size your lima bean is in comparison to a lime. The “Hide from Newsfeed” button is my best friend.
