Birth Pictures Posted on Facebook 2010-05-21 14:30:19

Are All Birth Pictures Appropriate For Social Networking Sites?

Birth is beautiful, but should photographs of baby making its way out of mommy or shots of the bloody afterbirth come with a warning on social networking sites? People go to places like Facebook to keep up with friends, family members, and acquaintances. Is updating your status to include a photo of your pregnant belly or newborn different than posting a picture of the doctor probing your placenta? What's your opinion?

While I agree that everyone has a right to post what pictures they want, I'm also of the mind that these are the pictures I'd only really want my immediate family to see. Even then I wouldn't post it online anywhere.

They should have the right to post them, but they should be considerate. Some things are just TMI.

Most of my friends are at the stage where they are all having babies, and none of them post any NSFW birth pictures. Most of them are just top shots of them holding the baby, totally covered and then of the baby as its being checked out. I think its their right to post whatever they want within the TOS of the website. This is another one of those things i have no idea why people get so riled over. Its not you, its not your life, so why waste your time viewing it and getting huffy?

Yes, they have to right to post them, but a lot of the post birth pictures are NSFW. I can choose not to look -- except that it comes up in my news feed !

I'm posting pics of my belly, and I will when the baby gets here, but that's about it! My hubby and I are the only ones even in the delivering room! No one else gets to see it.

Agreed with anon. Yes, I think people have the right to post those pics. But seriously, why would anyone want to?
