Would you want your children's names, ages, and dob on Facebook?

I know certain sites are popular, like Facebook, LiveJournal, etc. When I belonged to LJ, I used a nickname for each of my children. My boy was Boo and my girl was Babygirl. My husband has a Facebook page, and he has all their info up and that freaks me out. Would anyone else be bothered by this?

  • I use nicknames here but have shared what months we were born in. I believe I communicate quite well with others here without giving out such specific details about my kids or myself. But we all do what we are comfortable with.

  • Facebook doesn't have the security Myspace has. Even with your account set to private on facebook, if one of your friends comments on your of their OTHER friends (not yours) can see their comment and your picture for a limited time on your friends wall. I removed all my pictures and only make limited comments. I don't like Facebook, I find Myspace more secure and more user friendly.

    On Myspace, I do have a limited amount of information available.

  • You can actually go into settings and set things like the pics, etc being seen by just friend, friends of friends, etc. :-)
