Preface: I've been watching a lot of Law and Order: SVU

I just need to say that some people don't think when they post pics of their kids. I have a friend (acquaintance really) who regularly posts pictures of her 4 year old in nothing but her underwear. I understand that for most of us it's just a picture of a cute 4-year old. But, I worry that picture is going to end up on a site it shouldn't.

I have another friend who regularly posts pictures of her 9-year old in her skimpy dance costumes with full make up (that's another post) and suggestive poses. She also posts pictures of her posing like a teenager would pose. Again, for most of us it's cute, but I worry about those ending up someplace they shouldn't either.

I know, I'm overreacting because I have too much time on my hands and I've been watching too much SVU. Just something I think about every time I see those posts.

I think about this too when I see friends post bath time photos with just a little clip art star or something covering their privates. It makes me shake my head but I donít say anything.

I'm with you. That's too much. It's scary to think how available those pictures are to others. We don't know who is checking this stuff out.

I too worry about this, its a sad world out there and people should think before posting "innocent' pictures.

The other day one of the StL newscasters asked for parents to send photos of what their kids were doing to keep busy. Told to include name, age, and school, etc. I was appalled. Too much info!

Holy cow!! Why would any parent include all that info? Thatís just asking for trouble. And why would any newscaster think thatís a good idea? Iím appalled.

I cringe when I see those type of photos. I worry about that, too. I donít hit like on those posts either. Makes me feel icky.

For that very reason, my DD does not post photos. I ask permission before posting anything with the grandchildren in it. Too many weirdos in the world.

I agree! My neighbor posted a video of her three year old son running laps around the house yesterday. He was naked! No blurring of the privates!!! Iím still shocked she would do this.

of my fb friends have their fb page set only to friends, so others can not see the photos of their family, friends, pets and kids. They will post their kids in the wacky clothes they choose to wear at home, but no nudes or underwear.

OTOH-I see "reality family stars" from TLC shows posting pictures of their kids all the time. The adults are careful and stick to "modesty clothes" but show their kids in ways I think are not in the child's best interest and they get thousands of views. Makes me just SMH.

I always think of this post---someone posted a funny photo of their grumpy kid on a swing (and their settings were friends only) and a young coworker they were friends with turned it into a meme and it went viral.

You don't have to post naked pictures...

...to attract pedophiles. I used to use pictures of myself and my grandson as my profile pic until I reaized that was probably why I kept getting friend requests from people I didn't know but who also had photos of a child in their profile pic. When I quit doing that, I went back to rarely receiving shady friend requests.

My solution has been to restrict photos of my grandson to family only and to not have anything on my FB page indicating where I live. I've never posted naked or underwear pictures, but I occasionally post a shirtless or beach photo.

I'm just as surprised that people will post perfectly normal photos of their kids playing in front of their house, but you can see the address and easily identify the home. And then they include where they live and work and sometimes share photos posted by their child's school. Any pedophile could easily figure out how to find that child and start grooming him/her.
