My Daughter Has Published Bikini Pictures of Herself On FB...what is the downside?
07.12.09 | chickensoup

Posted on 07/12/2009 4:26:05 PM PDT by Chickensoup

What is the downside of her publishing pictures of herself with little clothing on a social networking site. Even if it is just friends, or even friends of friends...how far could these pictures go?

The correct question is “Would there be an UPSIDE to posting such pictures?”
The answer would be “No.”

Sounds like anyone who can see her site has access to copying the pics.

Not quite - the profile photo you use to ID yourself on your site is viewable by the public. Anything else is hidden until you become a friend of the person; or until one of your mutual friends shares the photos.

She lives with dad now. I was going to put a bug in his ear about it. He has some influence.

Just working my way through posts...this was my next suggestion after reading that your daughter doesn't really listen to you.

Hopefully, he'll be able to get through to her. Use some of the news articles that have been linked up to now that show what can go wrong.

I put a picture of me in pajamas on the Undead Thread one New Year’s Eve. (Big, pink, flannel pajamas, with cows.)

I'm sure you've heard it before, but some kids just have to learn for themselves. You can tell them all this until you're blue in the face, but they don't seem to think the rules or consequences apply to them. They only learn through experience. Their own experience.

However, you can be there to help pick up the pieces.

If she’s not nude, don’t worry about it.

Exactly. If she's over 18 and she's actually wearing something (even if it's just a bikini), there's little to nothing to worry about.

She may want to reconsider.

Colleges and companies are now checking websites like FB and using it to help inform them.

With a cell phone?

I’d never allow my kid, esp. a girl to have a photo capable cell phone.

Thankfully my kids are grown so I never had to deal with that.

unfortunately whats done is done, once it's out there, well it usually means forever, i’ve found things of a friend from many years back, yea i mean years back , she should be told of these consequences and thoroughly grounded from the Internet for a long time to add to the “ now you can have free time to think abou’t this , young lady “ maybe she to old to some, but if she still lives at home , then you still make the rules, my oldest is 17, and my youngest ( a girl) is 14, i believe what i pass on, god forbid it ever happens to me, i’ll strangle her, then she wouldn't have to ever worry abou’t it, good luck

I’d say you should worry about the situation if a) her profile is public and/or b) she tends to add people she hardly knows.

If that’s not the case, if she can trust her friends and she’s cautious about not adding strangers, I think the photo won’t come back to haunt her or anything.

Either way, I agree with the poster who said that the photos could be perceived as vulgar.

LOL! Believe it or not, that’s a different style of pink flannel pajamas with cows! (I think my mother was making a snide joke about breastfeeding ;-).

Yes, that was two boys ago, when “pajamas media” first became a pop phrase. One can buy a lot of flannel pajamas (and cheap pink wine) for the cost of a few cans of baby formula.

I understand that prospective employers commonly search “social networking” sites to give them a glimpse into the character of applicants.

If your daughter’s a young adult giving off the “wild child” vibe I’d discourage her.

If she’s a minor, I wouldn’t allow it—period. I don’t care how furiously she stomps her feet and cries—there’s just no need for it.

Well, they’ll potentially be on the net and out of her control forever - but that won’t necessarily be the case, if she takes them down promptly it’s not likely that it’ll happen.

As far as whether or not it’ll be harmful, it depends on the kind of ‘bikini pics’. If it’s something suggestive, it would be best for her to take it down ASAP. If it’s just pictures of her at a beach, pool party, or something like that where wearing swimwear would be expected, then it’s not going to be a big deal.

Someone commented about the possibility of someone taking a photo of her head and photoshopping it onto a nude body. This is actually not something you need to worry about, both because it’s extremely unlikely to happen (unless someone has a serious vendetta against her) and also because there’s no stopping someone who really wants to do it - thanks to scanners, ANY photograph of her face will do, even the one in her high school yearbook, and it doesn’t have to be digital or posted online. Fortunately, such photoshop jobs are usually pretty bad, and almost always instantly recognisable as such, so if someone does choose to do something awful like that, it shouldn’t affect her career or anything.

I think I have a sense of this and will try to move slowly and perhaps she will understand the greater impact of what she is doing.

Move slowly on teaching her responsible internet use. Move swiftly to remove the pics and restrict her access to Facebook for a short time.

The main problem with embedded images these days on social networking sites is that the images contain tags which identify the exact location and time where the image was taken (when those images are taken with modern digital cameras in phones). With multiple shots of ones daily life activities posted to a social network site, someone can construct a map of the posters habits, daily stops, work routine, etc. if the GPS location tags feature is not turned off.

The default settings in most of the hardware out there is with these features “on”. This has been an issue for the miltary, a guy posting a shot of his down time in afghanistan can conceivably be providing an exact coordinate for some enemy to drop a mortar round on.

She could end up here, with freepers determining her guilt, or worse yet, she may be photoshopped with a pancake on her head!!

Only if God wants it so. ;-)

If you post photos to Facebook, Flicker, or any other free storage site, when you signed up you signed a creative commons license. This means the photos are in the public domain and may be used by anyone for any purpose. That's the reason I keep all my photos on my own server, and only post photos to Facebook that I do not mind being shared.

I’ll remember that if I decide to run for anything!

My daughter is going a bit wild out in the Pacific ... although I don’t think pictures are up, except for an occasional shot of the entire crew of her boat in combat gear looking bored. Unless she turns up on teh interwebs in pink flannel pajamas, I’m not going to blame myself. They’re gonna do what they’re gonna do, just like we did.

Now that I have multiple teenagers (three in the house, and Anoreth turned 20 out on the cutter) I often let my mother know how amazing I think it is that she didn’t kill my brother and me. We were real twerps.
