Yes, I think putting pictures online is okay, but WHAT those pictures are is definitely important. I don't put any naked or half naked pictures online any more and I've gotten pretty selective about what I'll blog about as well - a "funny tantrum" could come back to haunt my kid later in life.

Why not? Everyone else is doing it!

While I think baby pictures are fine to post online, I think as a child gets older their parents need to recognize that child as an individual with a right to privacy.

Parents should be allowed to share pictures of their kids with their friends.

I'm so torn on this issue. Social media is about sharing your life, so obviously parents will want to share pics of their kids. But I've literally watched some kids grow up on my newsfeed. I know where they vacation, I know where they go to school, who their best friends...but I barely know their parents because we lost touch post-high school. There's just something not right about posting every little thing about your kids life online.

I think parents need to think before they post. Don't over share and don't embarrass your kids.

technically yes, but we are seeing how messed up our kids are becoming from being born in the digital age. did you know that Facebook prioritizes pictures of your pregnant belly and kids over anything else? it's a vicious cycle
