On Monday, August 25th, Fox News 32 interviewed intellectual property attorney and social media expert Daliah Saper about the recent decline in parents posting baby pictures on Facebook. While safety and privacy concerns are cited as the main reasons behind this unexpected decline, concerns over companies misusing personal information and the often unpredictable consequences resulting from social media postings prevail as well.
When it comes to others posting photos of one’s baby or child, however, control is much more limited. As Daliah points out in the interview, legally speaking, parents cannot stop others from posting pictures of their children unless the photos are taken under circumstances that manifest a reasonable expectation of privacy. If no reasonable expectation of privacy exists, parents can only ask others not post pictures and de-tag them when they do.
