It's been said often, but it probably can't be said too much. If you've got kids and you're on social media, be really careful what you post about them! I read an article this weekend that reminded me that most of us have probably made some of these mistakes, I know I have, so it's not a bad idea to revisit.
Never post photos of other people's kids without their permission. This is a big one! Your daughter looks really cute in her tutu with her ballet class, so you post the group photo. Some parents may not want their kid's photo online. It may seem like overkill, but experts say that it's really important to get permission before posting photos of other kids online.
This one got me. Don't post photos with Geotags. Did you know that pictures and videos can contain location information in them? Your smartphone can tell where, when and even exact GPS coordinates for your photos or videos! Yikes! It's not a bad idea to check your phone's settings and turn that feature off!
Finally, I think this is obvious, yet you see it way too often. Don't post anything that shames your kid. Don't post embarrassing photos. Don't post rants about something your kid did that might come back to bite you when they get a little older. Everything you post is out there…forever. It's always good to remember that, even if it seems funny at the time, what you post about your child could be hurtful, either now or in the future. So, think twice with every post.
