I have a Facebook & a Myspace, and like to keep my friends and family updated with photos of my daughter. However, occasionally, I feel a little uneasy about putting up adorable, fun pictures of my daughter in her diaper, or in the bathtub (nothing graphic--just her chest showing.) Everyone on my friends list are people I know, and my pictures cannot be seen by other people not on my friends list, but I sometimes wonder if someone I don't know that well on Facebook could look at my pictures...or someone's husband, brother, babysitter, etc who might happen to get onto the computer...Am I being overreactive/silly? I know that children who are singled out by pedophiles are rare, though, and really struggle with being a realist. (I was raised in a family where I was taught that everyone is bad, and everyone is out to get you, and be on your guard every second--I still really struggle with that mentality.) Then again, I try to practice trusting my instincts, too.
