I am not a helicopter parent

And trying to not be, BUT, dd put pics on facebook of letters she got from her boyfriend today.  It shows her address, where she lives her dorm and room number and his address which doesn't show much for him, of course.  Should I tell her to make them private or take them down or leave them where they are??? Oh, and we have a very uncommon last name.

Yes you should tell her to take the letters down!

I would tell her to make them private, because you never know who else is looking at her profile.

I would tell her it is dangerous to do that and if she wants to put the letters up, she can black out the name and address or take them without the name and address on there.  If she refuses, FLAG IT

I'd would at least ask her to make them private. I am not a helicopter parent either but I think this is more of a safety issue as far as having very specific personal info out in cyberspace for anyone to access.

I would tell her to take them down....whether she does or not is up to her, of course.   Perhaps she simply didn't stop to realize how much personal info she posted for all to see.   I don't consider pointing that out to be helicopter parenting.

 She can crop them to remove her address if she doesn't want to remove them but she needs to know how dangerous it is

I would just point out that her personal info is out there for everyone to see, then let her make the decision.
