Should We Post Pictures of Our Children Online?
According to the internet security company AVG, 92% of children in the U.S. have a digital presence by the time they turn two. But a University of Michigan poll from March 2015 found that three-fourths of parents think another parent has shared too much information about their child online.
In this episode, we bring together three people with very different approaches for a conversation about ethics, photography, and the struggle of weighing future consequences in a world we can't quite picture yet (no pun intended).
Here's where our three moms stand on posting photos of their kids:
- Note to Self Host Manoush Zomorodi, who posts nothing.
- Note to Self Executive Producer Jen Poyant, who posts every day on Instagram.
- Longest Shortest Time Host Hillary Frank, who posts drawings and side-angles but no faces.
