Quincy Larson —Won’t someone think of the children!! After making very good points about FB collecting information on us you say “it is ok to post photos of you and your kids”. Posting photos of your kids is opting them into FB’s data collection machine. Think about if they had data collected on you from birth. For some kids this is now true.
A great follow up article would be research on the impact of parental social posts of their kids. We don’t really know all the possible ramifications yet because those kids are still growing up and the net is still tightening. A good place to start is just to re-read this piece and think about what is being created for children whose pictures and stories are being cataloged by our Facebook overlord.
