People are constantantly uploading their naked baby pictures to facebook – Now facebook OWNS them.

Now a large conglomerate with who knows what kind of employees own these ‘cute’ pictures.
Now I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with these pictures if you want to share them with family or friends but don’t post them on the internet for every sam, dick and sally to see – who knows what kind of perverts are out there.
And you’re thinking facebook has privacy terms only people I know can see them. How many of us have acquaintances and people we barely know on facebook. I find it hard to believe you have 498 close friends and family members. Not to mention if you post these pictures as profile pictures which is often the case anyone can see them.
My daughter is probably one of the few babies who’s pictures have never graced facebook. I have hundreds of pictures but I send them to my family/friends through the mail (yes mail – who has physical copies of pictures anymore?) or their personal e-mail.
Well I’m done ranting so please just consider the pictures you post on facebook it is not much different them posting them all over the internet. (Okay now I’m done.)
