    Never. I find it incredibly tacky.

    Umm, no.  Very odd.  I know one case in which it was funny (my friend’s Father-In-Law set it up, and he would post HILARIOUS comments from the baby’s profile), but I personally would not want one for my child.

    No, I hate this. I think there is a generally major oversharing of baby photos on facebook. I respect peoples right to put photos of their baby on facebook, but with some people I am ‘friends’ with, it’s gotten to the point where the poor childs life is entirely chronicled on facebook. I wonder how the kid will feel in 20 years about the fact that facebook owns their baby photos – their first steps, their first poop (seriously) and their first smiles.

    @Mischka:  You and me both. I don’t have any actual children of my own (Just a godson [That I raised] & a goddaughter) but it definitely reminds me of things to not do when I get around to that pesky spawning thing.

    I think it is really, really creepy. I am also a fan of the STFUP blog and have to say that the things that some mothers want to share with the rest of the world and then some is pretty appalling. Next they will have Facebook pages for the placenta.

    I think the lesson here is: teenagers should not have babies 🙂

    @ms.sara:  I feel the same way! I would feel so violated if all my childhood photos were on the internet. Just because you can post things on the internet doesn’t mean you should.

    No no no no no no. Why do infants or fetuses need Facebook pages?

    I’m a mother and I didn’t. But if people want to use facebook (or any other technology) to update friends and family, I don’t have a problem with it.
