Posting Pictures Of Others' Children Online – Cute Or Crossing The Line?

It seems that more than half of you are less that impressed with friends and family who post pictures of your children online – without your permission.

We’ve become a nation that loves to share. But when it comes to others sharing pictures of your children on their social media profiles, parents are less than impressed.

In a study by the Pew Research Centre in the US, 57 per cent of parents say they ‘strongly dislike’ it, and are concerned at the overexposure of under-18s online. 

When it comes to others sharing pictures of your children on their social media profiles, parents are less than impressed.

It also found that 36 per cent of respondents are anti-oversharing of what they consider personal information on Facebook, suggesting it’s not just baby pics that are crossing the line.

We can all relate to the need for ‘parental guidance’ when it comes to what makes it from personal photos to sharable content online, but some parents have gone as far to say that they don’t want their little ones to be photographed at all, and have requested other parents crop their child out before clicking ‘post’.

How do you feel about friends and family sharing pictures of your children on social media? Let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comment box below.
