Everyone has their right to their own privacy...but I always find it a bit weird when friends are uber private with their baby pics. I only have two friends who are on FB who are this way. I have very few people in my life that I'm close to who don't have FB aside from older relatives and a few cousins. Anyways, the friends on FB who don't share photos on FB have shared them in other ways via private emails or a blog with a password. To be honest, I find it a bit pretentious to share exclusively with very few people. I don't check my old email address often so the photos the one couple would send DH and I started piling up. I couldn't be bothered to remember a password to check my other friend's blog. Maybe I would if these were really good friends of mine or were family members.Actually, I also find it a bit attentiongrabby to be so private. I don't have the time or interest to jump through hoops like remembering to check old email addresses and remembering passwords in order to see pics. When someone chooses to share that way with me, I feel like they're looking for extra attention and that what they have to share is just too damn special to share with the rest of the world. And so be it! Of course they should feel that way about their children. But I don't necessarily feel that way. I much prefer to see photos that friends and family post on FB. I can do it at my own leisure. I can search for photos if I want to. I'm also a bit creeped out by people who are so paranoid and neurotic. Maybe that's why I'm not as close to them. Anyways. Just thought I would share my two cents. :
Because once something is on the Internet, it is not really private. There are child molesters all over the Internet doing all kinds of crazy things with photos of children, including infants. People make photoshopped child porn to get around the law because its a digitally created kid. Some people are just creepy and have random pictures of little kids doing kid stuff on their computer.
Sorry, but I have seen this stuff because of my job. I am not really interested to discover some molester with a digitally altered picture of my kid in a tub stolen from Facebook and traded all over the web.
