According to a study conducted by Ofcom, parents are divided about whether it is right to post photographs of their children online.
Many of those who avoided sharing on social media said that they wanted to protect their child’s privacy.
An interesting statistic found that 70% of the 1000 adults surveyed in April by YouGov believe that it is not okay to share images of others without their permission.
Social media makes it easier than ever to share our lives online that sometimes we don’t think about the consequences of what we are sharing.
With the rise of daily vloggers who video their lives and upload it to youtube, you may not think twice about an innocent photograph in comparison.
Many of those surveyed who do upload photographs of their children say they are very confident in who is able to access the images, citing that their accounts are set to private so that only family and friends can see them.
