Before you post your child's photo

In one study, 92% of U.S. children under two years of age have an image posted on line.  Most of these images are first posted when the child is about 6 months of age, but one third of newborns have on line images posted within weeks of their births, and 23% have pre-birth ultrasound images available on line.

REMEMBER, BEFORE YOU POST A PHOTO:

  • Once an image is posted it is always available – especially as the child grows into adolescence.
  •  An image that is posted can be reproduced.
  •  An image can be searched and reused in a different context.
  •  So, think carefully before you post an image and make sure the site has security settings.
