I tripped over this post on Babble.com yesterday and it got me thinking. Have I ever photographed my kids during a sporting event and posted it online?
Recently Drew won his league track championship in the 3200 meter race. I took a photo of him on the top of the medal stand and posted it on my private Facebook page to share wtih friends and family. The photo included the other top finishers. It never crossed my mind that this would be inappropriate. Is it?
I do admit, I’m careful about the pics I share in social media forums. Obviously, Sean and I are comfortable sharing pics of our kids with our readership, but I’d never post pics of others (kids or not) on this page without permission. I do want to respect other people’s privacy.
That being said, banning a mother from videotaping a basketball game so she can send it to grandparents seems extreme.
What do you think?
