How come people think its okay to post your kids pics on their FB page?

I would never do such a thing unless I asked the parent. I don't even put many pics of my kids on my page.

  • I guess i can agree with that. If i was not on facebook, it might bother me too.

  • i have a friend and our girls play together often, we always take pics at playdates and post our pics up on our fb pages. we even "tag" eachother in them. we take pics at family gatherings which my kids are involved in. they end up on mil's page, uncle in law's, sil, wherever. i dont see it as a big deal, these people are family and friends.

  • Well, my facebook page is private. Only certain people can view my pictures. I never tag anyone, because it gives more access to the photo.

  • I don't see it as a big deal either. It's not like they are posting my address and phone #!

  • I guess if they see the parent doing it and they are a close family or friend they dont think its a big deal..I dont see why it would be either. Now if its someone you dont really know, thats different...

  • I don't see a problem with it. I even let my kids play outside where people - even strangers - can see them.

  • That's different. I'm saying if I wasn't on FB and someone posted pics of my kids, I wouldn't be too happy.

  • I have never had that happen...

    Also, I wouldn't let someone take a picture of my child unless we were good friends or family anyway.

    If you don't like it tell the person.

  • I always ask first. Although all my pictures are private, I still won't post unless I have permission or I fuzz out faces of the other kids around.... adults I don't give the same action to, lol

  • Family posting...that's fine.
    Close friend...fine, as long as they ask me.
    Anyone else....NO.
