@FranQueen22:  Some people like to be anonymous because they like to be honest and post little rants and things on the board that they wouldn’t necessarily like their friends and family to see. Or future employers. Etc.

@FranQueen22:  I’m not 100% sure why, but I think some people do it when they are showing potential dresses and wedding details just in case someone they know sees it.  Other than that I think it is just general internet privacy concerns.

It is for privacy.  When/If you start having babies and move over to babycenter.com you will see how freaking crazy online forums can get.

Yeah do a google search of posts you tagged…I popped up all over google after posting on the bee.   I realized I needed to be a bit more thoughtful about what I posted :/  not as anony as I had thought.

Honestly, I never saw the reason for it, so I posted pics of myself in three dresses. Now when you google image those dress styles, not-so-flattering pics of me appear. 

I really wish I had blurred out my face. Seriously.

Frown Embarassed

Lesson learned.

@kjo:  I had no idea that babycenter was crazy O.o

I’ve got a stack of books as my picture because I’m too lazy to go find my face; plus, it’s really easy to find my own comments, so if I post as a placeholder, I can find where I left off pretty quickly.  Aaaaaaand I think I’m ugly anyway.  I don’t really want to have to look at me.

@FranQueen22:  Also another thing to think about. Anytime you post a pic on here, the lil Pinterest icon to pin it pops up on it.  So, basically anyone can pin your picture on their pinterest.

I cut some of my photos off at the head because you can pin pictures from here onto Pinterest. Some pics I don’t mind sharing with brides but I don’t want awful pics of me posted for the world to see. And some bridal salons don’t really approve of photos being taken either so when sharing it needs to be anonymous at times.

However for those that hide their identity just so they can bully others is really inappropriate!!!!!!!!!!!! In fact I don’t believe they are welcome on these boards

I don’t post ANY pictures on here. I value my privacy way too much.

Privacy reasons. I will post pictures of my hand (nail polish/rings) but that’s about it.

privacy and freedom to do so, as some people might facing some personal problem and would like to ask for others opinion and some might be complaining about something to rant it off, they do not want other people (especialy people who know them) who she is talking about and people will gossip around
