Fostering and Facebook

Am watching Breakfast on BBC One talking about Facebook. It started me thinking (dangerous I know!).

I was just curious as to what foster carers felt about Facebook. I do try and guard our family privacy from any curious eyes, but it is not just main carer Facebook but the Facebook of your own birth children or foster children. Even if you set privacy to high there is still lots of info to be teased out for the determined.

Just curious really as to what others do.

If she has complex needs is it maybe a sensory issue? If you need to get it REALLY smooth I'd recommend a Vitamix ( or cheaper Villaware) m. My DS us completely tube fed and has real food down his tube rather than formula and the VMmakes light work of it :-D

An really sorry. Using my phone to post and this reply is ( very obviously) in response to another thread. Not sure how that happened. Sorry

No problem. I guessed that was it. Sounds like you have your hands full. xx

I do, but much less full than in the past. DS us now healthy, in spite of his medical issues :-D

Nit really sure about FB. My sis us a super FB poster and poses more risk of posting pics/ info she shouldn't. I have explained situation but not sure she quite accepts the need to keep private stuff private..... Time will tell. Tbh I don't put many pics of myself if DS on either.....

I do think it can, in some situations, be helpful but it is a huge minefield

Yes, it is only just dawning on me how much can be found out about our family if someone was really determined to delve.

I am glad that I guard our own and f/teens privacy fiercely from the curious or just plain nosy - something that was drummed into us in training.
