Is taking photos of your child and putting them on social media irresponsible or harmless fun?
As someone who was born in the social network generation I myself don't feel that I should put a child on Facebook. Any child under age 16 in my book should not have a Facebook or not be put on Facebook. Whats your viewpoint? Have you factored in all the dangers involved in Facebook and social media?
I dint use Facebook but for hubpages I post pictures of my kids and.mostly write about them,I dont feel threatened because I am very overprotective and don't let them.out of my sight.I believe that kids And teens should stay off social sites.and some irresponsible grown ups as well.
I don't know about irresponsible, but it's annoying. I have kids and I don't feel the need to broadcast their lives on Facebook. I find many parents who do are over-compensating for the fact that they are bad parents. If they were good parents, they wouldn't feel the need to advertise it.
It really depends on one's Facebook account. Some people actually are only "friends" with people who are indeed (close) to them. Facebook originally began as a tool for staying in contact with loved ones whom you may not see on a regular basis. Sharing a child's photo and updates with aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents .
Once people started "friending people" they've never met the word friend became diluted. It became a race to get the most "friends".
Ultimately it's up to the individual to limit what is visible to non friends and family. Facebook allows people to create specific "group pages".
We live in an era where 10 year olds have their own cell phone. The Internet is available through Wi-Fi in lots of public places. There is no way a parent can keep a child from opening up a Facebook account.
Truth be told reports have indicated that many teens no longer consider Facebook to be all that "hip" anymore.
They're choosing other social media sites along with FaceTime.
There are too many social media sites for parents to keep up with.
