I had an aunt if mine pose a confusing question the other day.
What if someone sees my daughter’s picture online?
Hmmm… I post them so they can be seen. I asked her if she remembered how exciting it was when, in grade 1, I got my photo in the Wpg Free Press.
People saw it! That’s why it was exciting. Did my parents put me in danger allowing it?
When my magazine article was published my photo was there. People saw it.
What should we be afraid of?
We should keep private photos private. We should not post information about addresses or banks. I personally don’t like to give my birthday either (identity theft fodder) but sharing our lives is why we’re alive.
Caution yes, prohibition, no. I choose to participate in the world. The leading cause of death is life but I prefer it to the alternative.
