Will you be posting LO pics online?

What kind of online presence is everyone planning for LO after they arrive? Are you going to plaster fb and the forums with millions of photos, or limit the number of publicly available pics? Or keep pics of them off the web all together?

Re: Will you be posting LO pics online?

  • Limited, but will probably post one or two on FB and one here.

  • I post one of L about once/week or so. We have a lot of out of town family. And then I have his pic here of course.

  • FB will get pictures...But, I have my FB on lockdown......So, I'm not worried about that. 

    I want to put up one or few ;) here, but I have heard so many horror stories of crazies stealing LO pictures.....It scares me a bit....I'm trying to figure out exactly what I'll do. 

    This is what freaks me out a bit too. I'd love to share with the board and always think, "who would want to steal baby pics?" But then there are all these crazies who do 0.o

  • Probably one or two on FB. I usually get annoyed when people post pictures of their child daily. And one on here too.

    What do people do with stolen baby pics? Pretend your LO is their own baby?? I dont get it.

  • I will not be one of those people who posts an abundance of photos of my baby to social media. One or two when he is born and then occasionally.

  • I will but I think I'll try to limit it. I have my FB locked down pretty well but I think I'll cut my list a bit more before little one arrives.

    Yea they do, it's insane. There was all this recent drama here with someone who stole another members baby pics and announced them as their own. Someone recognized the original owners pics and called them out on it.

  • I've already been cutting down the people on my FB and everything is private on there so if I do post pics, I'll know who has access to them. Definitely limited though. For here, I'm kind of up in the air. I love the labor stories and pics from other months so I feel like I won't be able to hold back but then there's people who steal pictures and thats terrifying.

  • I got off FB specifically for this reason. Didn't want tons of pics of DS online, and more because my in-aws are FB STALKERS and I didn't want THEM posting tons of pics. FIL has been de-friended by multiple friends of ours.....too much or me
  • We will post an announcement pic on FB and then our photographer will probably tag us in sneak peaks once the newborn shoot is done.  Other than that I will probably just post a photo here or there in my private groups.  I may or may not post a photo on TB.  I need to gauge the crazy meter first.

  • My FB is friends and family only. You ladies will get one or two pics with my name written all over his picture :)

  • I'm a weirdo, I'll probably post a LOT of pictures of this LO at the start on Facebook. If I don't, MIL will, or my mom. Or all three of us will, like what happened with DD. Heh. As for anywhere else...I'll be sending one picture out to a group of friends I've got that I don't talk to on Facebook or just don't have them on there (with at least one or two of THEM not having Facebook at all anyway), and I'll probably share the same picture here. AFTER that, though, it'll be a group of pictures every few months, how it is with DD.

  • Oh, you'll get some pics lol. I'll probably alter them a little, but they will be a comin...

  • Our families are spread out all over the place so FB is how we keep in touch with many folks.

    My settings are done in  way that only people we are connected to can see the pics.  But I don't really care if someone steals my pic, I have the real thing and that's what matters to me


  • I'll post frequently on FB. I'm comfortable with my privacy settings. I'll probably post a few here too. My other kids are in my siggy, so it clearly doesn't bother me too much.

  • I'll post some on Facebook and maybe 2-3 here. I have a private blog for friends and family, so I'll probably post on there mostly.

  • I post occassional photos of DD1 on FB but my account is set to private.  I am very selective of who my FB friends are.  I don't put any on the bump because I have seen too many WEIRD situations involving pics over the years I've been on here.

  • not sure yet if I'll post any here, but I'll def be posting a lot on FB.  I have the max privacy settings up there though so only friends can see, so I'm not worried about that.  It'll be really fun to share pics as she grows! :)

    wow, that is some crazy sh**! wow...
  • I will probably post one or two pics on here with a birth announcement, at least for a little while. I might take them out after a couple of days. My FB and Instagram accounts are only close friends, so I'm sure they'll be posted there.

  • Here I will probably post one when he is born and one from newborn shoot just to AW a bit but I like to keep it out of my siggy and avatar. FB I'll post pictures. I keep select people on my Facebook though and my privacy settings are on max so I'm not concerned.

    @katemw I saw she got banned.  Was it an IP ban or has she already tried to reincarnate herself under a new AE?

    This is going to sound somewhat dark and gloomy, but I don't trust many people. I will probably not post pics on my FB. I also have mine on lockdown as I have about 10 different lists set up based on how I know people, but that doesn't make me more comfortable with it considering that what happened to me was done by a family member. I don't trust people for that reason. I will probably post one or two on here and I look at this differently because only 3-4 people know my real name and they have no clue where I live so I am more comfortable with strangers seeing my daughter. I won't be putting pics in my siggy or anything though.

    I'm kind of in this camp as well. People just take my fb pics and share them without asking; or all the random friends of the tagged ppl comment in them which I hate.

    I was legit considering making a private fb page for LO and strictly friending only a few close friends and fam so they can see baby. However, I feel like some people might side eye me...like they would those ppl who create profiles for their cats...lol. I just would feel better about controlling who had access to LO that way.

  • I will post on FB. My privacy settings are on high and over the past few years I've been removing people that I am not close with. I haven't decided about posting one here. I was really freaked out last week when someone shared another users baby photo on here (I think it was the August or September BMB). I like the closeness of the users that are active and participate but the lurkers (who ever they are!) scare me.
  • I will not be one of those people who posts an abundance of photos of my baby to social media. One or two when he is born and then occasionally.

    I thought this too but then could not help myself! I am quilty of three a week at least! He is to cute not to share! We have family in Italy though so it's nice that they see him this way! I only have close friends and family though!
  • I considered this, but I decided that I will definitely post pics on facebook. Only because I live so far away from my family and friends, and I want them to be updated. Plus, I am going to be one super proud mama! I could totally understand why people would choose not to, though.

    I will post a couple pics on FB, but like others have said my FB account is on lockdown so I'm not too worried. Unfortunately, I probably won't be posting any pics to the Bump because it's too open and there are too many nutbags out there...I'm just paranoid about that stuff.

  • I will not post any pictures here. I don't have Facebook but will post a couple to Instagram which I have set to family and close friends only. Anyone I really want to share pics with will get an email. I have instructed family that no pictures of our child(ren) are to be put on Facebook.

    i wont be putting them on the newsfeed on FB, i made a secret baby group and only added family and really really close friends.  Im not one to post really anything FB.... As for the bump i havent decided yet, most likely i will. I know there are weirdos out there, but whats a pic of my brand new squishy really gonna do? They pretend its theirs in a couple years?  babe wont even look the same 24 hours after birth let alone years down the line.
    curious why you are comfortable on TB posting a new born pic,but not FB?
