On the occasion of school, many parents took pictures of their children and posted them on social networks. But parents are really aware of the risks?

Atlantico: More and more parents posting pictures on Facebook of their children, especially during the school year. How do you explain this phenomenon?

Jacques Henno: The first thing to consider is who can see these photos. There is a great effort to make education with parents to learn to control privacy settings (see: Facebook and your children Telemaque editions). In fact, they should pay more attention to setting their Facebook accounts and therefore to better protect their profile.

If such pictures are visible to everyone, there are obviously parents’ fault. It is not a question of law to the image precisely because it belongs to them. They therefore have the legal freedom to do so. But from the point of view of responsibility, post a photo of her child on Facebook can be a problem because it can quickly fall into the wrong hands.

What exactly are the risks of such a publication on a social network the size of Facebook?

It is worth asking whether a pedophile who falls on this kind of photo can really close this child. He will not be able to approach on Facebook since it implies that the child has an account, which is relatively rare. You should know that pedophiles almost never use the tool to approach Facebook miners because it leaves too many traces. An official of the juvenile in Paris had the opportunity to confirm that this was not the preferred method among pedophiles.

The pedophile may also approach the child to the school if the picture allows geolocation school. There is therefore a danger that exists. But, as I said before, Facebook leaves traces, and the pedophile can be found if viewed this photo. The problem is not so much vis-à-vis pedophiles who are very wary but rather to demonstrate a lack of respect for parents in relation to image rights of the child. Indeed, any image can be the child of such a publication? When taking pictures of a child, it is advisable asked him permission. By dint of having to ask the child will acquire ownership of a reflex image.

Children are not they more applicants photos. Not encourage it not also parents to post pictures on social networks?

Parents should educate their children and have the reflex to put limits on this type of publication. They should explain the photo belongs to the child alone and must maintain and preserve its image. Parents should not succumb to the demands of children. If the photo flatters their ego and narcissism of children is huge, do not hesitate to explain the risks they face.

Social networks do they lose their parents head to forget the safety of our children?

Parents are generally very proud of their children. So there’s always this desire to show. Facebook is a new mode of dissemination and expression of admiration. The publication is facilitated and it is in this sense that we must not forget the risks.
