I’m a mom & I would never make my almost 4yr old daughter a page. Its kind of creepy for an unborn baby to have a fb page. I have family that lives far away and I find ways to keep them updated without blasting my daughter on fb.

To each their own I don’t care what other people do with their facebooks. Some of the comments on here are just so rude though… wow.
Anyway I had my son when I was 19 but I didn’t do this, I also know someone in their late 20’s whose 1 year old has a facebook… so I don’t think age is as big a factor as you think.

It’s seriously fucking weird. I believe the best response to these was one I read online a few weeks ago: When one of your friends does this, make a profile for a wire coathanger and poke the baby.

I do not think starting a childs life out with a social media website is a healthy thing to do. As a high school teacher I see students everyday who can not go 5 minutes without checking into some form of social media. They view who they are online as their identity. It is almost like it becomes their reality. We have had students have anxiety attacks and huge break downs when they get a piece of technology taken away from them and they can’t access their social media site for a few hours.
I am sorry if this all sounds extreme, but it is something I deal with each day as my school has 1-1 technology at my level. I will do my best to keep my kids off of facebook as long as possible.

I instantly assume that someone has no life when they do something like this. I actually know someone who just did this for their newborn child and I nearly gagged when I saw it. I also hate it when people make profiles for their pets. It makes me so glad I don’t have a Facebook anymore.

@Mischka: Not a fan of the idea myself (aside from it being against FB’s TOS). It seems that having that kind of profile would be an open invitation for weird online stalkers or perverts, or give other adults the impression that ‘mommy’ either has too much time on her hands or possibly needs a ‘Girls Night Out’ with some other adults.

No, I hate it when people do this. I know someone who has a fb page in her son’s name – he is about 6 months old – and so I see things pop up like “baby name” likes that status. It’s weird.
Also while we’re at it I can’t stand when people post messages ‘to’ their baby who can’t read and has no idea what fb is. Or talk about their baby as if it has opinions – “baby name’ can’t wait to meet his Auntie!! Really? No. Just say we can’t wait to have you meet our baby. *urk*

there is a friend of a friend of mine who did this on FB, the page is public (even worse) so it shows up on my news feed when my friend comments on the “baby’s” status updates. The “baby” writes things like “mommy must be so tired today because I kept her up alllllll night” and “my mommy just changed my diaper and I peed all over her.” Not only that, the mom will then reply to the kid and say ” ohhh my sweet sweet baby boy, it’s ok you kept me up/peed all over me. Mommy loves you sooooo much”
it’s really… odd..
