I'd like to hear what information you have about this subject, and how you made your choices for your family.
So far, here's what I understand as factual info:
- there's a low likelihood of a predator seeing an image of your child and targeting them in real life but take precautions anyway and don't post images with identifiers
- social websites like fb may have privacy controls to set so that the site itself doesn't have permission to use your images, and to control which of your contacts on that site have access to your images
- web-based predators DO collect "innocent" images of children
- advertisers sometimes use photos they find online without permission. To make it harder for them to do that, use watermarks and post only low-res images
- sometimes families make a password protected, non-googleable blog and send out the login info to friends and family by email. BUT many folks in our email contact lists have inadvertently downloaded viruses, and have had their email accounts hacked, so the info is then even more easily available to other users
I'd love to know if there are any other considerations I'm missing, if anything I've listed is just dead wrong, and how you made these choices yourself.
