book it, we live in a generation where nothing is private!!
Today’s young parents are the very first generation to EVER raise kids in a period of social media, and a new study reveals that nearly two-thirds of young parents post photos of their kids online!!!
While posting pics of kiddies may not affect them now, researchers are wondering what implications these pictures will have by the time children are old enough to be impacted by their preexisting social footprint.
A new study revealed a quarter of these Generation Xers expressed a high level of concern about online privacy, yet their behaviors were more shocking: a WHOPPING 70% said they have shared their own photos online they’re not only posting their pictures, they’re posting pictures of their kids as well!
Nearly two-thirds of parents (66%) reported sharing pictures of their kiddies online, and a little more than half (56%)
bragged shared news of a child's accomplishment!!!
And while this seems harmless from the well-intentioned parents, the harsh truth is, once it’s posted – Facebook owns it, and it’s out there forever!
What do you think about this lack of privacy for your child? Do U think our children’s activities should be a bit more private?!!
