So the other day a guy I know posted a picture of himself in the bath tub with his one year old.
Yes clearly naked and splashing around in a bath tub.
I found it really inapropriate and weird, I mean I wouldn’t post pictures of myself in the bathtub but somehow because a baby is involved then it’s ok?
I shouldn’t be surprised since we are talking of someone who posted a picture of his newborn on facebook halfan hour after the birth, his partner hadn’t even woken up from the anaesthesia after a c-section, and created an fb account for the baby before she was born.
Would you find this type of picture inappropriate?
And just for fun, inappropriate/weird posts/pictures on Facebook

Um yes, that’s super weird and creepy, but honestly with all the ridiculous shit people post on Facebook these days, I’m not surprised even a little bit.

Well… does he have the privacy set to Friends only? Or did he limit it to an audience of people who actually know him/his child? If he’s using the FB privacy controls correctly (like everyone should), then I don’t see how it’s a big deal, unless the picture actually showed his junk.

WARNING THIS IS AWFUL…
My best friend’s friend on facebook posted a picture of her, her husband, and their living child posing with their stillborn child. Everyone was smiling.
THAT’S INAPPROPRIATE FOR LIFE.

@vorpalette: It was one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever seen. I mean…the Victorians used to photograph the dead. But they weren’t grinning about it!

Wait – your friend was naked or the baby was naked?
If your friend was naked – totally inappropriate. But naked babies don’t phase me a bit.

I think there is no longer a separation of public and private life anymore. I hate social media sites. I use them for work because I have to, but I do not use them personally. I can’t understand why anyone would feel the need to post constant updates about their life, and even more so I can’t understand what would possess someone else to actually read them.
It baffles me. Our society doesn’t even know how to talk to each other anymore. All we do is use electronic devices to mediate our relationships and I for one have had enough of it. Okay. That’s my tangent. I absolutely do think a picture like that is inappropriate to post anywhere. Don’t people realize that what is online is always online and the content they upload belongs to the site? I hope I’m dead before the world goes to hell in a handbasket… 😛

@peachacid: now that is so creepy.
@walnutgirl: I don’t think that is inapropriate. Would it be any different if it was a pool? Did you see his willy? if not, then there is nothing wrong with it. To argue people post too many pics of thier kids is one thing, but inappropriate, no.

Depends on what was visible. Chances are he wanted to show off his baby’s joy for bath playtime.

At the risk of threadjacking, I just want to say… ITA! I went away with some friends for the weekend and one evening we were all lounging around, recovering from the day’s activities. I suggested we all play a round of cards and one of my friends responded, “Sure. Just give me 15 minutes. Since we were out all day I didn’t get to check Facebook and I need to catch up on my newsfeed.”
I don’t have Facebook, but I was baffled. I mean, you would rather stare at your tiny cell phone screen and read about what everyone else in the world is doing than spend time with someone who is in the same room as you?!
OP: I personally find it inappropriate. But I hate social media in general and the fact that our generation is obsessed with oversharing things that really should be private.

Are you sure your friend was actually naked and not wearing swimming trunks? Definitely a little inappropriate for FB if naked, but as long as the junk wasn’t exposed, i supposed it’s not X rated so it’s not against the policies.

@walnutgirl: It’s weird. Some people don’t have a filter and social media only makes the problem more evident. I once saw a picture on another site (but it was taken from facebook originally) of a woman who had just had a water birth. The tub was filled with bloody crimson water and her 3 year old was standing outside of the pool cheesing and giving a thumbs up while the mom sat in the water holding the newborn…like, really? You couldn’t have waited to get out of your own blood and fluids to take a picture? And idk how the little girl wasn’t traumatized…it looked like pure carnage.
I have a friend on facebook who posted a status about her UTI and another friend who posted about her explosive diarrhea. Fiance is also friends with the diarrhea girl and he commented on her status warning her that it was Too Much Information an nobody needed to know about it. She apparently didn’t agree…

in general, i find naked picture of infants weird and inappropriate, so this is basically double-inappropriate. my cousin is a very classy girl, and when her son was 1 year old, she took a picture of her and him in the bathtub and posted it – BUT she was wearing a bathing suit and he was wearing a swimming diaper!
i hate when people post nude photos of babies and you can see their genitals, it’s like, that is still a human and if they knew what you were doing and could communicate they would tell you to quit it. -_-
