Sorry a fb one. Someone I knew from years ago has just posted about 6 photos of herself in the bath with her niece and nephew. Kids are 3&4 ish. One has the little boy standing up so you can see stuff.
I'm not sure how private her profile is so I've reported the pics. I'm not overreacting am I? I'd never put bath time photos of children up on the internet confused

It just seems like such an odd thing to do.

You should be able to tell how private her album is by the little thing in the corner. If its a globe its public. If its an asterisk she has customised which friends see it and if its 2 heads then its her friends only.

Tbh - its not something I would post but I dont think I would report it.

Personally I think you should just defriend her if you don't like what she posts. I don't think there is anything offensive about a naked child in the bath. I think you should leave decisions about the child's privacy to the child's parents/family (who presumably saw them on facebook too).

Of course there is a difference between a naked child on a beach and a photo of a naked child on a beach.

That pic can easily be copied and shared. Don't know about you Tee, but I would be sickened to think that a photo of my child was being bandied about on a paedophile site.

If she is so stupid to put a naked pic of a child on FB, then she probably has no privacy settings at all, and anyone can see the pics.

I probably wouldn't bother reporting to FB, but would have had a quiet word with her about this.

I don't think its appropriate to put a photo of a naked child on Facebook. I had my account hacked along with lots of friends and I wouldn't be happy with my child's naked photo being available on the web. It's unnecessary why does she need her friends to see that particular photo?

FFS. I hate how something as innocent as that gets all twisted and tarnished by sick minded individuals looking for something to be offended by.

phantomnamechanger Sat 30-Nov-13 21:58:23

some people are living in the clouds if they cant see why this sort of thing is wrong

of course it is not appropriate to post naked pics of children, not even her own children at that, on the internet. It is not the same as a family photo album, and you never know who might use those pictures inappropriately.

Sorry but if the child's pre-school found out that there were naked photographs of him on the internet then it could well become a safeguarding issue. As I have just explained to her.
Not to mention nudity isn't allowed on facebook and the child isn't old enough to say whether he wants his willy made public!

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 22:01:40

She has explained that it's only her 300 friends who can see it. I've just explained that all it takes is 1 in that 300 to copy it or share it and there's a problem.

I'm not offended by the photo. I just think it's inappropriate to share it publically.

TheArticFunky Sat 30-Nov-13 22:01:41

My cousins account was hacked and her photos (entirely innocent ) were used as a profile photo of someone who was spamming people asking them to view a very dodgy link.

Facebook is not warm fluffy land full of lovely people there are some real dodgy people on FB. Anyone who puts their child's or another child's privacy at risk is naive and irresponsible.

what panson said

I'd send her a link to this story about a teacher demonstrating to her class how quickly you lise control of your pictures online.

tinkertaylor1 Sat 30-Nov-13 22:11:27

There was a post on FB the other day and I was quite startled by it.

It was a picture of a lady holding up a card stating some something like 'today I'm talking to my students about placing picture on the internet, lets see how quick this can travel'' or something to that effect.

It had been posted the day before and had a staggering amount of likes...over 100,000 in one day! It had travelled all over the world. Once a picture goes live that it, its not yours.

Its a horrible world we live in. sad

Actually, all the for-fucks-sakers and mind-your-own-beeswaxers are utterly naive if you think that naked pictures of children on facebook wouldn't fall into the wrong hands.
FB is utterly riddled with paedophiles and even if it wasn't, we owe children the courtesy and respect not to plaster their private parts over the bloody internet before they have the wherewithal and rights to object.

YANBU OP.

I'm a FB addict, and even I think this is so unreasonable.
Her niece and nephew? So not even her kids. I'd be absolutely FUMING if one of my siblings posted bath pics on Facebook to people who I don't know (because I DON'T know everyone in their friends list.)
Regardless, they wouldn't be bathing with them. End of. Even if they were it wouldn't be up there on Facebook anyway! Some people are idiots when it comes to Facebook.
Has anyone asked the kids whether they want their bits all over FB? As I'm sure as soon as they're old enough to tell yoi it would be a big fat, emphatic NO!

SantaIKnowHimIKnowHim Sat 30-Nov-13 23:02:44

Another point is the hacked one. My brother had his account hacked by a randomer in another country he had never visited.
Why would you feel comfortable with some stranger thousands of miles away looking at your children in the bath if this was to happen to you?
It's not a coffee table bring the albums out type thing to friends on Facebook. You are insanely naive if you think so. It has the potential to go EVERYWHERE!

FredFredGeorge Sat 30-Nov-13 23:10:32

Naked kids on the beach can be easily photo'd and that image shared anywhere too, you don't have to be the photographer, the only difference would be if you never let your child naked in a public place otherwise.

HildaOgden Sat 30-Nov-13 23:16:19

Apart from the naked child photos (not really sure what I think of that,no strong feelings either way I suppose)....does no-one else find it a bit weird,kids sharing a bath with their naked auntie???Seriously?I find it odd...I certainly never saw my aunts in the nip (thank God)

Exactly. It's not like when we were growing up, with just cameras pointing blatantly.
Now it's all instantaneous under the guise of looking at your phone and done surreptitiously by randomers.
Sad state of affairs, but true.
You'd have to be mad to let your kids run around on the beach naked nowadays. Really sad, but true.
Have they expressed an opinion of you uploading their naked bods to the internet? No? Then it is NOT your place. They are people in their own right,

I do! smile Bathing naked with my aunties would have been seriously weird, and would definitely think it weird if my sis decided to bathe with my kids!Weird all round there!

amistillpregnant Sat 30-Nov-13 23:36:22

I think the aunty investigating. If it was an uncle bathing with his niece/nephew & posting pics on face ache...

There aren't that many disgusting people in the world.

Operation Yewtree meant nothing then?

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 23:53:50

The aunty acts like they're her kids. It's all really really bizarre.

Kyrptonite Sat 30-Nov-13 23:54:33

Oh and it was the aunties mum taking the photographs. It's actually really odd.
