Note to Self

Should We Post Pictures of Our Children Online?

August 16, 201623 min
According to the internet security company AVG, 92% of children in the U.S. have a digital presence by the time they turn two. But a University of Michigan poll from March 2015 found that three-fourths of parents think another parent has shared too much information about their child online.
In this episode, we bring together three people with very different approaches for a conversation about ethics, photography, and the struggle of weighing future consequences in a world we can't quite picture yet (no pun intended).
Here's where our three moms stand on posting photos of their kids:
Note to Self Host Manoush Zomorodi, who posts nothing.
Note to Self Executive Producer Jen Poyant, who posts every day on Instagram.
Longest Shortest Time Host Hillary Frank, who posts drawings and side-angles but no faces.
This is a repeat episode which originally aired in 2015. For more Note to Self, subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, I Heart Radio, Overcast, Pocket Casts, or anywhere else using our RSS feed.
