The Problem With Grandparents Posting Photos of Their Grandkids Online

Research indicates that oversharing will likely result in up to 7.4 million cases of identity fraud by 2030, costing future generations more than $900 million.

The average parent shares almost 1,500 images of their child before their 5th birthday.

So what’s the problem with posting photos of kids on Facebook, Instagram or other social media? The two biggest concerns are identity theft and child pornography.

One thing that’s important to understand is that social media “privacy” settings are not entirely private.
