I'm throwing DS's first birthday party with his school friends and I'm a bit anxious about people taking photos and posting them on Facebook. I don't mind people taking photos - I'll be taking photos too obviously - or sharing them by email etc, I just don't want photos of DS on social media.

I don't want to come across as really uptight about it or confrontational, so I was thinking of slipping a note in the party bags, like a cute poem or something to lighten it up... except I'm not great at writing poems... Anyone want to give it a shot?!

Not great at poems but just wanted to say that putting a note in the party bags might be too late. I'm just thinking about parents who may take photos and instantly upload them before they've even seen the party bag. Not helpful, but you may need to think of a way to broach it at the beginning of the party.

I know, I was thinking that... I'm not sure how to broach it without coming across badly, especially to one mother who uploads at least five photos of her children on FB a day!

Honesty is probably the best policy. You could say "I'm not being a pain/fussy but I don't want photos of DS on fb. Feel free to put other pictures of the party though" and smile confidently.

Would you say that before the party or wait until someone actually uploads the pics onto FB then ask them to take it down?
