    @guitargirl: We have pictures up. However, we have security set up so that only our friends can see them and it doesn’t allow anyone who is our friend to copy the picture either.

    I would post a few pictures (dont have any kids) but none of those “in the bathtub” shots or “naked playing outside in the mud”..ect 


    When people post bathtub photos of their kids , it makes me shudder.

    I chose other.

    When I have children, I’ll most likely limit who sees my kids photos.  Definitely not all 400 of my facebook friends.  Only ones I trust and want to see my photos. It will probably be about 70-100 people on my list now.

    I have a FB page with under 100 friends. All close friends, family and classmates. It’s private, no one can even message me unless they are a friend of a friend. Basically it’s as private as FB allows. I change my password monthly and no one can copy my pics.

    Do I really want photos of my child online? No. But with relatives out of state I admit it’s much easier to post pictures, videos and status updates to everyone rather than emailing individual people.

    I only have family/friends/people I trust, in total somewhere around 100 pepole, on my FB, so I have kid photos, but I made sure that only they can see photos, not friends of theirs of anything else.

    I do not have/want children, however I have lots of nieces and nephews that I have millions of photos of. The few that I post on FB are private, along with the rest of my photos. Why someone has a public profile/photos anymore is beyond me,

    I don’t have kids, but I love seeing pictures of my cousin’s kids since most of them live pretty far away. When I do have kids I’d make it so only my friends could see them, since I’m not friends with anyone I don’t know.

    @guitargirl: We’re TTC. I talked about this last night with friends as we were talking about FB privacy controls. I plan on not posting pictures on FB. I already have a Shutterfly site set up ready to go when it happens for us. I like my privacy especially with FB where it’s all too easy to overshare everything.

    I don’t like when people post photos of other people’s children. It irritates me. Parents posting photos of their children is different, they have their privacy settings set to where they’re comfortable and know the people on their list.

    I agree with the other posters.  We don’t have kids yet, but I am sure I’ll put pictures up.  I don’t have anyone on my Facebook that I don’t know, or that I don’t trust.  If I was worried, I wouldn’t added them.  Plus my privacy settings are pretty secure.

    I do post pictures of my daughter, but I dont post any pictures of her naked or in the bathtub. I also am careful with who I accept as friends and I have my page set on private.

    I will for sure. I won’t let them take over my facebook but I have no problem with people seeing pictures of my (future) children. I don’t really see any safety concerns regarding facebook at all. People post pictures of their kids all over the internet all the time and I don’t feel like their safety is an issue any more than just taking them out in public. Obviously I wouldn’t post inappropriate pictures online.

    Darling Husband and I were discussing this and I am very uncomfortable with pictures of our family posted online.  With Darling Husband being in the military, we’re both a little more paranoid about people connecting the dots.  I don’t even have my face in my profile picture so that people who aren’t my friends can’t connect my face with my name.

    I would consider making a private Shutterfly account and giving the password to the in-laws and close friends so they can see the pictures there.  That may be a better alternative than facebook.
