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.

Does social networking bring us closer together, or further apart?While sites like facebook and twitter enable us to share vast amounts of our lives with others in an instant, are our intereactions in fact becoming shallower?

Do you have an external blog that you link to your hubs? Do you write articles for an online magazine? And is it recommended to specialise in one or two areas - and connect a blog to these hub topics?I receive bursts of traffic when I promote my hubs on social media but I am looking into other ways...

I'm bored. Ok correction, I'm procrastinating. I randomly come on and off the forums and on this return visit I've seen SO many people questioning why their hubs aren't making money and/or getting traffic.So for as long I'm having fun, feel free to post below (either for your whole account or one...

A few years back when I did Examiner.com, the writers were always talking about where is the best places to promote our work. I feel like once you use all your social media accounts, hit up any forums related to your topic, reddit, and network with people you know, you're really out of places...

If we pump up our use of social media, i.e., marketing our articles more, will it help increase our traffic much? Or won't it make much difference because we are more dependent upon organic traffic? Something tells me we might have to wait out this drought. What say you?
