Why French Police Say Parents Shouldn't Put Kids' Photos On Facebook
It's about more than just the obvious privacy concerns.By Leah Becerra | March 2, 2016
French police are urging parents to not post photos of their children to Facebook, after a chain-post went viral last month urging parents to share pictures of their kids on the site.
The new counter-message (to not share those photos) is being circulated for a couple of reasons: If photos are shared publicly rather than just with friends, authorities say there's a chance sexual predators could get the pictures.
But also because when the children grow up, they could take legal action against their parents — all because of some photos shared online.
