Why Is Facebook Stealing My Baby Photos?

Is Facebook Stealing Baby Photos?

Recently, some people discovered a community Facebook page called Babies.

On this page may appear photos of your children or your friend’s children.

Many parents have been quite worried since their children’s photos have been appearing in a place where they did not upload them - naturally they are quite concerned about who else can see these private images.

Luckily there is a simple and safe explanation as to why privacy protected baby photos are appearing on this page.

And no, Facebook is not stealing them.

Ownership of Facebook Community Pages

Facebook owns and operates these pages, no one else!

What Type of Page Is This? – Community Pages

Facebook has a special type of page called a Community Page which it uses to display generic information relating to general topics. A community page is on a topic too broad to have one particular editor or owner. Examples include town names and topics like “Toast” or “Flowers”. These pages don’t do updates, but can be “liked”.

Usually a community page will have an extract from Wikipedia giving a brief description of the topic. It will also show friends who like that topic (this can also be because they have listed it as an interest in their profile.) The page will sometimes show an aggregated feed of any post or photo relating to that topic that has been mentioned by your group of friends or posted to a group you are a member of.

These pages are pull their content – both Wikipedia and feeds – automatically. They cannot be edited or changed other than by Facebook. The only thing that can be edited by a user is to suggest a change in the category the age is in or to suggest an official related page (for instance to associated the Coca-Cola official page with the Coca Cola community page.)

Highlighted Red Box

The text in the highlighted red box reads:

"This Page is automatically generated based on what Facebook users are interested in and not affiliated with or endorsed by anyone associated with the topic"

Why Are My Baby or My Friend’s Baby Photos on A Community Page

This page uses a very simple aggregation (information gathering) algorithm to display any photo your friend has taken with the word “baby” in the photo description.

Who Else Can See My Baby Or My Friend’s Baby Photos?

The only people who can see these photos on the Baby Page (or any other similar page) are those who you allow to in your privacy settings.

For instance:

  • If you post a photo with the word baby in its description with the “friends only” privacy setting on, anyone who is your friend will see that baby photo on the baby page.
  • If you post a photo with the word baby in its description and your content is set to “public”, all your friends and anyone who follows you (if you have the follower option enabled) will be able to see the photo.
  • If you post a photo with the word baby in its description to any group you are a member of, any person who is a member of that group will be able to see the photo on the community page.

To understand how content aggregation works, take a look at your newsfeed. You can see dozens of updates from friends – but only you and that person’s friends can see those updates. Essentially, this community page is like a “newsfeed” of all your friend’s baby photos.

Don’t worry – your images can only be seen by those who you’ve set to see them in your privacy settings, or those who are in groups you’re a member of where you have posted personal photos!

Did You Know

If you have tagged anyone on any of your photos, EVERY friend of that person can potentially see it too; subject to your friend's privacy settings.

The ONLY images that will show in the photo feed on these pages are those images that you have allowed your friends to see and your friend's friends based on their own privacy settings. Also any photos posted to a group that you are a member of!


Facebook Guides

Does Facebook Own Your Photos, Videos and Content?

IMPORTANT!!

You will be very surprised to see just who owns your online content and what you are actually signing up for when you join Facebook and other social networking sites.

What is important however is that you have complete control over who sees your content.

If you are not sure how to check your privacy settings, or want to update them to restrict them, take a look at this quick guide!

The Essential Walk Through Guide: How To Check and Adjust Your Facebook Privacy Settings

This is a MUST READ guide on how to check and set your Facebook Privacy settings. Keep this and refer to it regularly as a way to maintain your control!


Similar Community Pages

Are you aware that there are many similar community pages on Facebook of the same nature.

Here is one on dogs which shows friends who like dogs and related pages, plus photos of friends and dogs.

And another on Motorcycles!

Are you being added to Facebook groups without your permission?

Did you know that you can be added to a Facebook group without your permission! Yes, you can. This is potentially a huge invasion of privacy. And unless you are notified about it, you may never know. Make sure you read this guide on Facebook Groups!

Important Update

Update: It appears that Babies community page may have been taken down, probably due to Facebook's automatic reporting system, not because of its content. There are a number of other pages appearing with similar content. Make sure you adjust your privacy settings, remove tags off photos you do not want shared, remove all comments from the photos and THEN delete those you want to.


1. This article was written by a mother based on her knowledge of Facebook and is in no way associated with Facebook or have direct contact with them.

2. Although some of these baby topic pages have been taken down, there are different ones in different languages.

      Anything you upload to facebook becomes their property. When you sign up this is written in the fine print. If you don't like it then don't upload photos you don't want others to see. People are over reacting. It is not a privacy issue if you have 'agreed' to the terms and conditions of facebook.

      Did anyone actually read the information here? They are not stealing your photos - it's just like another form of your news feed, but relating only to babies. There is also a page like this for Dogs (with pictures of YOUR FRIEND'S dogs), motorbikes and lots more. Those photos will ONLY display to those who you are allow in your privacy settings.

      Meg my pictures as myself or my friends see them are as children but to other people I'm referring to pedos it's a different story that's why Facebook has privacy options I really don't think this is an over reaction if our photos belong to Facebook to do as they please then I will be deleting my account!

      Not only are they using your photos, the comments attached to those pictures are also being displayed for all to read. What's the point in having privacy settings when 'Facebook' comes along and displays your content to the world for you? How are these pages even useful or beneficial to face book users? What's the purpose of these pages?!

      This is wrong!! What snouts those parents who were unaware their images weren't private until this happened (this happens). There child could've been seen by a pedophiles and now be saved due to the fact you made a page all about young children. Stupid I think. Want a baby definition look in dictionary. There was pics of a child bottom rash when I looked and the whole private was exposed. Yes silly to be uploaded to begin with but IM sure the parent wouldn't think if a pedo types n as by/toddler that they'd be able to access it. Privacy??? These are children. Share pics of me fine but my child??

      I agree please take this page down call 'Babies' , I have came across photo's of my family on that page and my profile id PRIVATE or non do I share my photo's out with any1 I know! & I have no idea how that page BABIES got into my photo's? & I ain't even a fan of that page BABIES! SO PLEASE TAKE that PAGE down! How dare someone make a page and take other ppl PHOTO'S? I would love this page shut-down or taken off Facebook, So many people will be disgusted in this PAGE.!

      some of the content of these pages displays pictures which are not related to the topic of the page at all. You may call your bike, car or partner "baby" and it shows a picture of that. They could at least filter out the crap on these pages. Hardly informative or useful!

      We live in a sick world full of sick people. In no way do I want 'pesos' looking at images of children or babies. People just don't seem to understand that there is no privacy on the internet. Create a petition and take down this 'Babies' page, but make sure you delete your facebook account or any oher social media accont at the same time. ANYTHING you put on the net becomes the property of groups such as facebook. I am sure facebook does bot support 'pedos', so in the meantime if you are still worried don't upload baby photos.

      I would still like to have my Childs photos removed as I am not comfortable with it.It would not of been such a big deal with some people if this information was given before hand and in my case instead of receiving a phone call from my sister telling me that a page I have never heard of has photos of my son as a newborn. A lot of mothers would like and feel a lot better if this page was shut down.

      I want the photos on this page of MY daughter TAKEN DOWN!! It's not only friends of mine or groups I am in that can see these, I have asked total strangers to look as a favour and they CAN see her. And I can see photos of people's babies who I have never met. This is so WRONG it's MY child and I don't want her out there for everyone to see. DELETE IT!! Please delete it it is very unsettling :( I am happy to delete my whole acct to get them off if that is the only answer but I want them gone. They were personal family intimate moments not for the public.

      This is wrong! I agree with most of these comments.. Facebook does not have the right to decide where my private photos of my child goes. And if this is in the fine print that they are allowed to do this then I will be deleting my Facebook along with MANY of my friends. This is not something only friends can see as people NOT on my friends list can see pictures of my child as I can see pictures of people's children who are not on my friends list also. My Facebook and pictures are on the highest privacy setting so what's the explanation to this?

      As wrong as this site is a lot of people are missing the bottom line. You sign up to facebook so you give them permission to use your photos and details in any way they see fit. Yes it is wrong. Yes it leaves photos open and freely available to pedophiles. But if you have signed up to facebook you have waved your right to privacy. I don't agree with it at all, but it seems a lot of people do not know this.

      This " new thing " is pointless. There is no purpose at all in having these. The fact one that I can see people's pictures who I'm not friends with nor friends of friends with is disgusting of the rights of the parents. Seriously, it's annoying enough we can't change certain things already let alone have this one top! Just take it off/out completely.

      OMG people have you actually read the article above?? It is telling you that no one, besides yourself, your friends, or anyone tagged in the photos can see them! If you are seeing photos of strangers kids then its because either they are set to public, have been posted to a group you are a member of also, or you are friends with a person tagged in the photo. People are going off the deep end over nothing! Yes, I looked at the page after I was contacted by a number of my friends who told me my kids photos were on there. But once it was explained to me, the same way it is in this article, I understood no one else could see them. And if you don't believe me, go and create a new facebook account and have a look at the page again. I bet none of the photos you seen on your own page are there now. All you would see is photos that have been put on facebook as public, therefore, anyone can see them no matter where they look.

      ok, so I get the whole, everything on the internet is connected blah blah blah, if you want to make a community page for products, places, etc. then go for it, but leave out BABIES! Hello! With all the kidnapping and pedophiles out there and the easy ability it is for some people to hack into our accounts anyway, why would you create another page with many and multiple children on it. Our pictures should not be published anywhere but where we put them voluntarily. I think facebook needs to invest in some of their own spyware and identity theft software.

      Omg everyone shut up and read this post properly !! Idiot perverts can't see your child's pictures unless you have those perves on your friends list or unless your pictures are public. Do you not understand this at all ? You can only see your friends and whoever chooses to have their photos public. Just because you can see your photos doesn't mean the world can.

      Wow that's pretty awful. I have noticed that it's very easy to steal photos from facebook, so I would advise anyone to use caution when posting photos. If you don't want other people to have pictures of your baby, maybe it's not a good idea to post them. Very interesting hub with lots of information!

      Kym 4 years ago

      Did half the people who left comments read the article? It's only for those with access already. Sure it puts them out there, so friends no longer need to look in your photos, but strangers won't see your photos unless you've had a friend who's shared them on. And that's the Facebook risk that was always there.

      I get the whole agreeing to FB's privacy things but the fact still remains that they are using our children's pictures WITHOUT consent. To say that because you post on the net they're out there as a justification for this, is plain stupid. Yes, I post my childrens pics on MY FB profile and have the highest privacy settings that exist...now they've just moved it to "Newborn Babies"...sick regardless that this page even exists. So to those of you that can justify this as "you uploaded them, suck it up", would it be different if it were pedo's stealing these pics? Just because I have agreed to FB's terms, does NOT give them the right to use my children's pics in ANY manner from my profile...get it together FB and YES MEG I HAVE READ THE ARTICLE!!!

I just checked her facebook and I can see ALL of her photos.. so she failed to realise that the reason is at fault with her self.. she hasn't set her photos to 'friends' they're set to 'public' What is so difficult to understand!?

This is a joke of a page and I can not believe that it could even be thought out in the first place. There would be many people willing to consent to their photos being put up so why not just ask for permission before taking that choice away from us????

      YOU ARE ALL MORONS. These photos are shared with your FRIENDS only. If you upload a picture your friends can see it anyway. It's exactly the same! Only it just shows pictures of one 'topic'!

      The infant page has now gone.

      The very worrying thing is ok maybe this has been set up by facebook and 'not a big deal' however what about when someone sets up something similar people will assume its facebook and not report it.

      It is wrong, I use facebook to keep in touch with friends and family I don't want to have to worry what random pages they will generate with my information.

      Firstly, yes Facebook do have rights to your photos. You agree that Facebook owns your page an everything it contains when you clicked to agree to terms and conditions.

      Why are people still getting angry? If your settings are private only your friends can see them.. If you don't want your friends to see them don't upload them in the first place. If your settings are public, well they're open to the public regardless of topic pages.. And that's something you should rectify if you don't want strangers seeing your children.

      You people are not reading this properly. At had been explained in great detail and you still are outragged. The only people that see the photos of your children are your friends. It searches your Facebook and your friends for relstef topics and displays them all in one space. Its not like you can't see your friends images anyway... there is no privacy breech here. You need to wake up and realise the internet is not always a safe place. You upload photos at own risk!

      Once again, I read even more thick comments! All woffling on with yourselfs about breech of privacy lmfao! The photos you can see on there of other peoples children is because that other persons albums are set to 'public' go on their actual facebook account, and check their albums, you'll see what I mean. If you have your albums set to PUBLIC then yes others WILL see your photos. If you have your albums set to only 'FRIENDS' then NO ONE else other than YOUR friends will see YOUR photos. Seriously read the article ABOVE.. it doesn't take a lot of common sense to understand it! A lot of these comments up above just shows how may unintelligent people are using facebook, they can't even understand an article!

      dropbox is an excellent way to store your pictures onto an online hardrive and you can share it with friends. Facebook owns anything you put on there. Everything you do on the internet leaves a trace weather its facebook or your google history. Its part of the terms and conditions as others have mentioned - delete your account or the pictures, if you don't want to do that double check the people that can see your albums. If its only your friends then there isn't an issue. Thank you for the informative article.

      When we set our page to privacy we only want our friends & family to see the photos not the world hench the word privacy. Facebook are taking the piss with this. They should ask first before taking photos of babies especially with the world we live in today. I'm not friends with 99% of the people who's photos I've seen so all that only certain people can see it is bollocks. If I set a page up of other people's babies photos I'm sure the police would be banging on my door the next day.

      I completely understand this article. But it's still

      Not right. What about the people who are new to Facebook or older people who don't understand the "public" or "private" rules. They should also be entitled to privacy because its THEIR account. Now because of their error, their pics are splashed all over in public view.... And anybody and everybody can see them AND comment on them. There's something seriously wrong with that!!

      Yes I saw my children but I'm set to private so I know that they're safe and only me or my friends can see them.

      It's still wrong though. It's supposed to be a way of communicating with our friends. We shouldn't be used for community pages or interest pages!!?

      If you put an image on the Internet (Facebook) then you have lost control over it and there is no such thing as "privacy" online. I don't understand why people are so shocked that Facebook can use their images. Firstly read their terms and conditions. Secondly the moment you upload them you have lost control of any perceived privacy anyway. I have always been very mindful of what photos I post of both myself, my family and my life in general. If you don't wish for random strangers to see them then don't post them. Print the photo's, perhaps even make an album and share them that way.

      Don't forget that computers get hacked every day so your images aren't necessarily safe on your home computer either.

      I think people are getting made because they "think" their setting are set to private. Every time face book updates it resets your settings to public.

      To keep your pictures "private" regularly check your privacy settings to keep on top.

      I think it bad to call them morons or stupid, we should be informed when our settings have been changed how hard would it be to send out a system generated message to people giving them a heads up that their privacy have charged or defaulted back to original settings. For this reason I think the News feed topic page is a na idea as people's pictures may have be set for all to see because they wasn't aware their settings have changed

      Also I think it's creepy anyone would want to go to a baby page and just randomly look at children??? I like seeing pictures of my friends children as and when they lost them but why would someone want to go look at a page dedicated to pictures or children???

      You can only see "random babies" if those people have set their privacy to public. Your sister/friend/auntie/cousin can only see them because you have allowed that.

      When you put a picture upon Facebook. They own the image, not you. It's in the T's and C's, Technically they could use a picture of your child on an advertising billboard and there's nothing you can do about it.

      When a service like Facebook is free for you to use, you are normally the product being sold. Remember that.

      Yet again a bunch of illiterate fools making a public display of their ignorance yet again in a 'comments' section. Learn to read the content of an article before spouting off your non-informed paranoid shriek-fest.

      The article clearly explains why this is a SAFE streamlining of photos on facebook and why you should NOT worry about it.

      If I face-palmed for every time I read unnecessary reactions like these... I think either my hand or my face would be in tatters.

      I'm really sorry, actually I'm not, but anyone who says that this 'page' needs to be taken down is an idiot. That's right I'm calling you a fool. I can even explain why.

      THE ONLY WAY A RANDOM PERSON CAN SEE PHOTOS OF YOUR CHILD IS IF YOU LEAVE YOUR PRIVACY SETTINGS TO PUBLIC.

      Do you understand?

      This is just a generated page based on your news feed. If your friends or family post a picture and tag it or describe it with the word baby it will appear here.

      Think of it like this:

      We both do a search on our OWN computers for files linked to Babies.

      Our results will differ massively.

      I have Baby photos of my baby Niece

      You may have Baby Photos of your child or relatives.

      Why would you see my photos if they are on my machine and vice versa?

      You wouldn't.

      The same is happening on this page, it's just searching through facebook and putting it in one place. Now if you have set your profile to private and made sure that all your photos have the update privacy settings but you still feel that "PEDOS" will be able to see your photos then you're going to have to start unfriending people. Because only people you friends with via Facebook can see these photos, so therefore you believe some of your friends must be "PEDOS".

      Now if you're still screaming "I DON'T CARE TAKE THIS PAGE DOWN STILL" here is the next thing I'm going to tell you.

      Delete your account.

      If you're so worried about this somehow leaking then everything you post is at risk.

      At least don't post any photos up and the same goes for other websites.

      Law is still not set on who owns what in a digital domain so invest in External Hard Drive and backup your photos the old fashion psychical way.

Privacy settings are supposed to be there to stop these kind of things why is facebook making programs to take baby pictures its against human rights no matter how many of u on here think people are being stupid and shouldn't put pics up if they don't want them seen you people are the ones who need your heads checking i don't have a child and im appalled at what its doing the pic of my sis half naked jus after giving birth isd not something she wants circulating round other pages its for Friends and Family to look at under no circumstances can anyone justify what there doing for one there children they can't fight for themselves and kick up a fuss about it can they if facebook doesn't sort this problem they will be gettin a big ass lawsuit from a lot of angry parents

      Yes Amy it bothers me too but not to the extent where im going nuts about it...... Say for instance i uploaded a naked picture of my boyfriend and labeled it 'babe-baby-bbe' none of YOU people on this blog would see that picture, only my friends would! If they say that only my friends see it then only my friends see it, however if my friends wanted to look thru MY baby pictures then they can without FB deciding what pictures of mine to add and what not if that makes sense, im far from happy but what can we do about this, probably nothing other than take all our pictures down and go over to twitter!! FB causes far to many problems over the las few years, is it worth it...... Im seriously considering closing down and heading over to there i im honest :-/

      If you can see a random stranger's pics on "that page" it's because that random stranger has set THEIR pics to PUBLIC.

      If YOU have set YOUR pics to FRIENDS ONLY, then ONLY YOUR FRIENDS will see your pics when they go to "that page". How hard is that to understand?

      I still think all these outraged comments are funny, and I just can't believe the utter stupidity of some of them.

      H and Shell.

      If I was a parent I would still understand as I know how computers work.

      Also H, how is your Ex still seeing the photos, the page has been temporarily removed. Also from the sound of it you are not on talking terms with him so how would you have found out.

      I really wish I could still see the page to prove that you are wrong. But the only way to do that would be to take a screenshot AND THAT WOULD BE INVADING ON OVER PEOPLE'S PRIVACY. I would consider doing it for the Dog page but there is no way for me to post pictures anyway so there's no point.

      Also Susan Kemly, you can delete the photos, just go into your photo album and delete them there.

      And last but by no means least, thank you Ellie. You give me hope in the Human Race again.

      But if you have set your photo privacy to Friends then must mean you want your friends to see it. Also if you tag your friend in it then we must also believe that the person tagged is in the photo. Why would you want that tagged person who is in the photo not to be able to see that photo?

      Also what's stopping said friends going onto your facebook page and then hunting through your photo albums?

      Nothing. If you don't want people seeing your photos stop posting them up and delete the ones you have.

      Andy 4 years ago

      just reading through and people are on about privacy.. but not a lot of people think about apps that they use check this article:

      When you allow any Facebook application to access your account, you are giving them temporary (up to about 15 minutes) to access and use your data. For example, if I grant an application access to my Facebook wall data today, they can’t see it tomorrow. Unless… the app specified that they get access to my data at any time. In that case, they can see all my wall postsa and photos tomorrow, too. Without my consent then.

      For the developer and whoever had the app made, they get a oAuth token that allows them to act as you on Facebook given the parameters of whatever you gave them access to. Their app requests a thing called “offline_access” in their code… which is exactly what it means. Access to your account when you’re not online.

      your worrying about facebook sharing your pictures to sick people.. when probably half of you have gave sickos direct access to your photos any time you want.. im deleting all apps off my facebook i might even close my facebook account.. facebook have give anyone with a little technical knowledge full access to your photos anyway...

      Did anyone even read my previous post :-S it doesn't matter what your privacy settings are strict super sctrict anyone can access your photos private or not via a Facebook app.. If you grant them access to your photos they can access your photos any time they want.. Its how Facebook works

      think of any Facebook apps you use they could have distributed your photo around the internet anyway.. That's why you agree to Facebook terms and conditions that make your photos acessable and usable for free by everyone regardless of your privacy settings

      Why are people saying they can see their child's photo on this page? These very same people probably didn't even know about the page until they read this article. And as the edit of this article states the page has been momentarily removed.

      So, as I said, how are they seeing their child's photos on a Facebook page that doesn't exist?

      And for those of you who have seen your child's photo on this page, well of course you are, it collects photos from any source that allows you to see it. Your own albums can't be hidden from yourself. What you need to do is get someone who is not friends with and ask what they see. THEY WILL NOT SEE YOUR CHILD UNLESS YOUR PICTURE SETTINGS ARE SET TO PUBLIC.

      Also I'm not sure why this site states otherwise but even if your friends tag themselves into a photo doesn't mean it makes the photo public. It's still hidden and only who allow in the settings can see the photo but this time with an additional tag.

      Yes Sora that is true. A friend who tags themselves or is tagged will not automatically make the image public, but it depends on their privacy settings. If they have their settings to public or friends of friends it allows your image to be seen on a far wider scale than you ever imagined.

      I believe you to be wrong. I had this situation happen a couple of different times with different friends.

      Each time they wanted to show me a picture they were tagged in (either by themselves, by the uploader or by another friend) and I was unable to see it as I wasn't friends with the uploader. Even with the tagged friends who have all their settings on public.

      This is why I believe (i.e know) you to be wrong. If you don't think that is right then do a little test with your friends on facebook. Find two willing participants, Friend A and Friend B. Get Friend A to unfriend you (temporarily, I hope) and tag the Friend B in a recent photo (so you don't have to go far back into the other friends photo history), it can be any photo as this is only a test. Also make sure that Friend A has set the photo album settings to private. Then go and look at Friend B's photos. The album that's called Photos of Friend B. You will not find the photo that Friend A has tagged of Friend B. Guaranteed.

      We have the right two protect our children. I didn't even "like" the page and it had picture of my child on it. This is not okay. And we ALL read this article before posting comments and it doesn't matter what they're saying, I can see picture of other people's children on it and they're also joining in and complaining about it. Its our right as parents to say something. So if we want this site removed or the pictures of our children taken off of it then they need to do that. We should be asked if we want photos of our babies on there. They shouldn't just be able to take them without asking. ESPECIALLY when some of us have our stuff set to private and its STILL on the site. In what world is that okay?

      YOUR PICS ARE ONLY VISIBLE TO YOUR FB FRIENDS,UNLESS YOU HAVE PUBLIC PRIVACY SETTINGS!

      Your privacy is in no way affected!If you don't want your pics on these groups then remove them from Fb,its no different to them being on your own personal profile!Why are you people not understanding something that couldn't be any clearer?!

      THEY AREN'T STEALING OR USING YOUR PHOTOS, people !

      Everyone settle down. The page is not taking your photos. How it works is.. When you look on the page you can see your friends images they once posted on there page. These photos are not actually on the page but its kind of a link to your friends picture. The reason you can see strangers photos is because they have set their photo to public. ONLY YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS CAN SEE YOU PHOTOS. Calm down.,

      Okay Carrie you're starting to tick me off. ITS OUR CHILDREN AND OUR PICTURES AND THEY ARE ON THERE WHEN WE DON'T WANT THEM TO BE. Its as simple as that! We shouldn't have to remove them from our facebook pages so they won't appear somewhere else. If we wanted them somewhere else we would post them there. If you're perfectly okay with the page then stop wasting your time posting comments and do something else with you're life but the rest of us will continue to say something until the problem is resolved.

      to have your baby's photos removed you have to delete them yourself off your page or delete the word 'baby' from the caption!!! is anyone actually reading this or just scanning??

      only you and your friends can see the photos if you have it set to private and if your page is set to public then you put the photos on the Internet for the public to see. don't want your photos on the Internet for everyone to see?? don't upload them in the first place!!

      We only get worked up because its our children. When a parent sees that their child's photo is somewhere it shouldn't be they're going to overreact. Do you know how many sick people there are in the world? We get what you are saying, we get that the photos may not actually be on the page but its still scary for those of us who worry about every little thing when it comes to our children. We just want to protect them.

      Sally your inability to read is ticking me off.

      Carrie is telling exactly what to do to prevent your photos being visible on this page. Yet you rebuke her. You've got it stuck in that tiny little mind of yours that FACEBOOK HAS STOLEN MY PICTURES, OMG!.!!!1

      THEY ARE NOT. You can see your own photos because they are just that, your photos. I can't see them, Carrie can't see them, damn it God probably can see them either if he has a Facebook account, unless of course he was on your friend list and your PRIVACY SETTINGS allow him to see your photos.

      I think the biggest thing that needs to be said is that DIFFERENT PEOPLE WILL SEE DIFFERENT PHOTOS ON THIS PAGE.

      HELL I'M GOING TO DO A TEST RIGHT NOW TO PROOF THAT STATEMENT.

      Go to the Dog page on Facebook, here's the link:

      https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dogs/11419724193075...

      The first photo is a Labrador. I know this as it's the image pulled from wikipedia.

      What I don't know is the following sections:

      The list of friends you have that like dogs. I've only got 4 people on their, you may have the same, you may have more or even less. But I do know that their names will be different.

      Then the all important PHOTOS. My first one is of a cat jumping at a bridesmaid. Do you see that? If you do maybe you have the same friends as me. The next photo is picture of my friend with a puppy on his head asleep. If you say you can see that, then you are lying. He has only shared this photo with a very selective group of friends.

      GO ON DO IT. TAKE THE TEST. See how you've gone and blown this all out of proportion. Just like when that Children's Doctor got run out a village just because the other name for Children's Doctor is a Paediatrician and people got confused and thought she was a Pedophile.

      I know you want to protect your kids from the evils in the world. But right now the biggest evil you have to face for your kids is your own Stupidity.

      Britt, don't preach to me about worrying about every single little thing when it comes to children. My son is 2 and a half and I still wake up all hours of the night just to make sure he is breathing but there is nothing to worry about with the page. pretty much the way it works is a mini news feed. When you post a picture or status on Facebook and it comes up on your news feed do you complain saying "Facebook stole my status or photo" no because you know the only people who see this is the people you choose to allow to see it. It's Exactly the same only it only shows photos that you or your friends (or people who choose public)have posted over your Facebook life that contain a certain word ( in this case baby, babies ).

If the article did however confuse them a little and they didn't understand what it is trying to tell them there is a handful of us trying to explain it in so many different ways so they do understand but they either just don't get it or have chosen to ignore us.

      Concerned Aunty T 4 years ago

      After reading this article and understanding it, yet I have many many concerns and my suspicions.

      Firstly the article states photos are of your friends and friends only. Well..'surprisingly' I came across some other people's photos whom I have no connection to. So explain that one? Who's to say, my photos of my nieces and nephew aren't just shown on some random's page. Assuming majority of parents settings are private for a bloody reason(Grrr)

      Secondly, if this page was created for information on babies why constantly change the name, firstly it was babies, infants and now new borns? If it was so innocent and with the number of complaints I'm sure it's receiving why not just shut it down altogether? Instead of shutting it down and creating a replica with just a different name every time.

      It is utter stupidty that Facebook even created this new feature. It was definitely a bad move and it's totally understandable to why parents/aunties/sisters/godparents are appalled. With the amount of sick bastards out there it's our responsibility to keep them safe. So to the inconsiderate cunts who think this whole matter is hilarious and that we are over-reacting need to jump off a cliff. Parents post photos up of their child for their friends and family to see hence the settings. So it is bizarre to see these private photos up for the public. It's an total invasion of privacy and it certainly sends a chill down my spine.

      It's as if someone broke into my home stole my photos and posted them online. That's the equilivent. Photos in my home are private for only my friends and family to see, same goes with Facebook photos.

    • profile image

      Amy 4 years ago

      This is not an opinion lead debate. It's factual. But anyway the reason why I'm commenting is to try to help these angry and confused parents understand that their children's photos are not up on some site. Also I like the idea of the news feed page thing and all of this complaining about something that people haven't understood properly is going to ruin it for everyone else. And as I stated early I DO have a child. I guess I'm just a not educated enough to understand words such as "fink" or "cum" or "av". Maybe if I understood this form of English I'd understand the statement.

    • profile image

      Sora Pilgrim 4 years ago

      Concerned Aunty T, you're not reading it right.

      The reason you are seeing other people's (strangers) photos is because the photo you are seeing are not set to private. Just because you're a good little parent and set your photos to private doesn't mean that all other parents are the same. If you don't believe me then right click the photo and open it in either a new tab or window. Below the bottom right of the photo will be the name of the album it is in and just below that will state WHO THE PHOTO IS SHARED WITH. I can bet it's not set to Private.

      Now the reason There are many different names for the "same page" is because THEY AREN'T THE SAME PAGE. Facebook searches for the names of page in the comments or descriptions. If enough of one word appears then a community page is made based around that word. A couple of example have been given already (Dogs and Motorcycles) there will be many more.

      It's not a stupid feature. You and the people who are overreacting are stupid. It is based on the Twitter feature of Trends. Facebook finds what most people are talking about and then compiles it into one place so every can be social (remember it is a social website) and talk to each other about different hobbies or argue over who has the cutest child (yeah I went there). Now the people who need to jump off a cliff are the idiots who don't understand it, yet are still calling for it to be removed. Do you understand how your microwave works? No? Well by your logic that microwave should be thrown out the window into the street. Maybe by actually jumping off a cliff we can remove all the low IQ carriers and have a better selection for the Human gene pool.

      And it's not the equivalent of some breaking into your home, taking your photos and posting them up for everyone to see. Using your analogy it is actually the Maid coming in to do a tidy finding photos that you've put on display but really hidden and moving them to a more predominant are in the house. NO STRANGER WILL GAIN ACCESS TO YOUR HOUSE AND SEE THE PHOTOS. BUT YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WILL BE MORE LIKELY TO SEE IT AS IT NOW ON THE MANTELPIECE INSTEAD OF IN THE AIRING CUPBOARD.

      What is left that you don't understand?

And if you see random peoples pics, how bout you click on their facebook pages, and you will see that their pics are set to public and that is why you can see them. NO ONE can see your pics unless you have already given them permission to do so. Its like banging your head against a brick wall!!

We're all entitled to feel whatever we want doesn't mean we have to be rude about it. I have personally tested this along with others and we can clearly see pictures that we know are set to private by other people. We have tested this different ways, I have deleted friends just to see if they could see certain pictures and they can and I have mine set to private. You people need to understand that some of us understand what you're saying but you won't listen to us. There are flaws in that page. We're not all lying to you. You act like everyone who disagrees with you is wrong. We're not. You're not either. But just as you want us to listen to you try listening to us!

      One more time. I truly do understand that many people posting here are concerned about their privacy and their children's safety. I get that, I do. As I said somewhere ^^ up there, I am a 60 year old grandmother of two beautiful boys, and I would do anything in my power to keep them safe.

      However, what I'm seeing here is mass hysteria. Those of you who are shouting the loudest really haven't read the article properly.

      The basic facts: If you can see a random stranger's picture, it means that the random stranger's privacy settings are set to public. Just because his/her settings are public, it does NOT mean that he/she can see YOUR photos. As long as you make sure that YOUR privacy settings are FRIENDS ONLY, there is NO danger that anyone other than your friends will see anything at all. Nobody has stolen your photos. It's that simple.

"Do you know how a microwave works" "These people are idiots" All of that was stated. Its rude. All I want is for those of you who have been being rude to see that some of us completely get what you've been saying but I want to be heard to. Why is it so easy for you to believe that EVERYONE is lying about what they see. That EVERYONE is over reacting. Look at the amount of people who have made posts. Yes, in the beginning people were confused and I get that. I was too. And yes, I see now what everyone else was saying.

      I hate to break to you but you must also have a low level of intelligence as well.

      You're obviously skim reading when you used the quote "Do you know how a microwave works?" I not asking if they know how to operate a microwave. I'm asking if they know how it works, the mechanics behind the machine. I'm asking if they understand why the food goes in cold and comes out hot. Most people don't know. I'm cool with that. It's not something that is common knowledge. I was using it also as a metaphor. The microwave is this Facebook feature of making communities. People don't understand how it works, how it gets to it's final result. But unlike the microwave (that people still use even though they don't understand the concept of resonance(that's what makes the food hot)), a small amount of willingly ignorant people are jumping on the bandwagon to get the Facebook feature shut down. A feature that will be great for millions upon millions of other people get either understand how it works or don't fully understand the ins and outs but know that their photos as long as they are set to PRIVATE will not be seen by anyone else.

      Ok you all realise that this article was written by a Facebook user, not Facebook?

      I had one photo of my son, set to only me. Guess what? Others could see it.

      If you are in a group with people you are NOT friends with, they can still see your pics, even if your privacy settings are set to friends/family only, others can still see them.

      So calling people names is disgraceful. While it is ok for some, others are rightfully cranky. FB pages of groups are losing lots of members because of this.

      point being- when people are told something is private after they have changed settings and all that, it should damn well stay private. And why shouldn't people be able to upload pictures to share with family and friends that live all over the world? Plus, when I signed up to facebook and checked that terms and conditions box- nowhere did it state that MY pictures become FACEBOOK'S property. That's just bull-and yes, I read it-and no it's not right because a proportion of the older generation don't know all these things so they innocently upload a picture of, say, a grandchild and suddenly people are saying they can see this childs picture on some group or page?! It's pretty scary for all involved so facebook should NOT be doing crap like this regardless of weather anyone other than your self can view it or not. They shouldn't be meddling with people's things-the end.

      Sora Pilgrim 4 years ago

      Ok I'm going to try and explain differently.

      You know your news feed?

      What if you could filter all the different articles from it.

      Let say you want to know what all of your friends are saying about a certain football team. What would you do? Go through the whole of your newsfeed? Click on every friend and search their page? I highly doubt that.

      What these "Community" pages do is quite simple what it says on the tin. It takes all the PUBLIC articles of your Community (Your friends, your family, work acquaintances etc.) and puts it into one place.

      But now let's get onto the main point. What is Facebook? It is a social website. They want you to build more and more interactions between other people. How are you likely to do this, by being introduced to other like minded people.

      Just look at all these comments on here. I bet none of you probably know each other. But you're joined together via your hatred for something you do not understand.

      So facebook have taken advantage of that and they added into the news feed anyones photo that has it's privacy settings set to public.

      There are loads of pages already like it but due to this one being babies everyone is going crazy about it. It reminds me of this news story back in 2000 about a small village mistaking a paediatrician professional title with the word "paedophile" and then mobbing her.

      Also I'm not sure if you're aware of this but if you post the link of this page into Facebook it still comes up with the title "Why Is Facebook Stealing My Friend’s and My Baby Photos?"

      Not you're new title "Why Is Facebook NOT Stealing My Friend’s and My Baby Photos?"

      You're probably better off redoing the title completely. Maybe "Your baby photos are safe, if you have the right settings." I don't anything that will hopefully stop people jumping the gun.

      Right I think i get it now, Can someone confirm please - even if my photos are set to friends only, a photo of my lad could still be uploaded to this page if a friend does it, and has looser security on their photos? Is that right? My heads ringing lol just finished work and walked through the door to this. Cheers :)

      Yes. You may have strict settings but if a friend does not it means it could be shared much further.

      I think this is absolutely uncalled for !!!! I seen pics of my daughter in my paddling pool ... And yes she had a nappies on but only for my friends to see as she was a baby. Facebook. I think ur contradicting yourself and need to pull your finger out if someone out someone up inappropriate on Facebook u take it straight down and ban them straight away now I'm sure there more than enough reports and comments for u to get ur page now rather than being hypocritical about the situation! Bams!!!

      It seems that there are many similar sites still live on Facebook under different names. Not sure which ones people are referring to however I have seen mention of an infant one and newborn babies one...again cannot confirm. But regardless people need to adjust their privacy settings NOW and get all of their associated facebook friends to do the same. Here is a guide to that https://hubpages.com/technology/A-Walk-Through-Gui...

      Stacey - you need to take your concerns to Facebook. They won't be looking here. This is purely an article discussing the issue, and providing guidance on how to resolve it on an individual basis. We have nothing to do with Facebook or the page so please, if you see anything of yours on a page you are not happy with on Facebook, you can report it or contact Facebook direct.

      I am disgusted to have a friend come to me to tell me that my daughters are on this site and i have removed them and to find family members on their as will , i think the security needs to be better then this as there is so many pedophiles on here and over the country and having a good kick from our children, i have reported the page as i am not happy at all!
