Posting a Child’s Life For the World to See is a Privacy Issue

Posting a Child’s Life For the World to See is a Privacy Issue | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
As fun as it is to share all of our kids' funny stories and embarrassing mishaps, we need to think of their right to privacy and not just our right to share.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

We have educators and educational systems posting school events under the auspices that they have permission. I watched a video the other day with an 'educator' doing just that under the auspices of being a leader.

Now is the time for more public (and private) discussion about how much is enough when it comes to sharing the private lives of our loved ones. I do believe children have rights and should not be exploited by their parents or older family members.

Youth are sharing more personal information on their profiles than in the past. They choose private settings for Facebook, but share with large networks of friends.

 

 

 

 

 

Key findings include:

 

Teens are sharing more information about themselves on their social media profiles than they did when we last surveyed in 2006:

 

- 91% post a photo of themselves, up from 79% in 2006.

 

- 71% post their school name, up from 49%.

 

- 71% post the city or town where they live, up from 61%.

 

- 53% post their email address, up from 29%.

 

- 20% post their cell phone number, up from 2%.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Educators should be aware of this. Will there be issues or concerns down the road?

US data but Pew Research is reputable. Privacy is a learned habit and we cannot assume younger people see the need. Maybe they will be proven correct and privacy is not required to the same degree as I feel it is and should be? Thanks Gust Mees.

The Pew Reports are always fascinating.
