Safety on Facebook

The holiday season brought lots of opportunities for beautiful family photos!  Just about everyone loves to share these photos with friends and family.

A lot of us use Facebook each day to talk about our families and share pictures.  But are you thinking about your privacy?

When you join a group on Facebook, you probably don’t know every person in that group.  Even secret groups may give an invitation to someone you don’t know, or to someone who doesn’t have your best interests in mind.  Anyone inside the group could copy-and-paste your post anywhere else: into emails or onto their own Facebook page.  If that happens, your words and photos will be public, and you won’t be able to control who sees them.

Please remember privacy when posting anything on Facebook, especially if you’re talking about children.  Even if you’re posting in a group you think is private and secret, don’t post anything you wouldn’t want everyone to see.
