NO! Your Baby DOESN'T Need a Facebook Account!

Wait! You don't look old enough to be on Facebook!

What is the deal with parent’s making their kids Facebook pages?  It is driving me insane!  Of course parents want to share adorable updates of their babies, and kids but is going as far as making fake status updates as if they are written by your child crossing a line?

I certainly think so and this is coming from someone who shares virtually her every waking moment with some form of social media.  Facebook, twitter, anything, everything… I blog it, write it, show it, share it… But I just can’t get behind these pages!

I am looking at it from a ton of different aspects though.

  • Safety
  • Privacy
  • Appropriateness

I mean, there is a certain gross factor other people don’t want to know about your baby, and the fact that they are constipated and haven’t pooped in a week throws you right into that over-sharing category.

But also in a day in age where identity theft is so popular, and where pregnant women have actually been tracked down by childless women who want babies, do you really want to put too much out there?

I go back and forth with this myself, and living such a public life frightens me on occasion. But I have already put so much out there since my oldest son was born, is there a way to really take it all back?

Don’t you think that Facebook puts age requirements on profiles for a reason?  I mean, I can’t be the only one who doesn’t want to see a Facebook page for your nine month old.

So what do you think?  Are Facebook pages too much?
