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?
What’s on the web is free game for anyone.
"The internet is forever" as they say.
She could wind up with a movie career.
They could easy be copied and pasted elswhere... some people like to photoshop things....
That someone will take her head and place it on another’s undressed body and THAT gets passed around the internet...
...that, and you could get in trouble for encouraging her?
Everywhere.... once it’s on the net, it’s permanently out there. Her friends can copy the images and post them on their own facebooks, and FaceBook itself reserves the right to all media posted there, even after you “delete” it.
every parents worst nightmare
Yes, the internet is forever. Would she want a possible employer to stumble upon these in a few years?
Vewry, very stupid of her. They go on forever. Her grandchildren will be accessing the pictures.
friend me so I can see if they are appropriate..../jk,
Nothing on the Internet is private. She’s made a foolish move. Probably nothing will happen, but there is the opportunity for trouble. Sorry to hear about this.
For one, facebook now owns the copyright of the photos...and can do with them as they please. Potential employers may be able to see them too, depending on her privacy settings.
Also, will need to see the photos to determine guilt... /s
Anything posted on the internet is forever...just like a tattoo...make sure you want it before you do it.
I wouldn’t post anything on the net anymore that is anything of personal nature.
Privacy is gone once you cross the line and it is near impossible to enforce confidentiality.
General rule of thumb...the less you post on the net the better off you will be long-term.
Can you imagine what could happen if we ever elected people even more left than the current mob?
Into the hands of a future employer, a college admissions office, or a stalker, for years ahead. Ask Carrie Prejean!
Why does she have so little self esteem she thinks her “friends” needed to see her body?
1. Perverts using her photos.
2. Deep regret for doing something really stupid.
3. Attracting unwanted attention by creeps.
Friends and friends of friends can copy the pics to their computer and then post them again on other websites or email them to all their friends.
All anybody has to do is right-click on the picture to pull it off FB and send it around the world. Your daughter is being unwise. She should recall that the Internet is forever, and when she is looking for a job in years to come, foolishness posted on Facebook can come back to haunt her. Many employers look at internet postings to evaluate job candidates, and if they google your daughter’s name and come up with some hot photography, what are the chances they’re going to hire her for any position better than exotic dancer? What seems like harmless fun at 17 can make a 23-year-old job applicant seem very unserious.
Once on the net, pics and words are immortal. They WILL turn up if she’s being considered for a job that involves judgment and discretion. I’m speaking as somebody who experienced the phenomenon the hard way in the VERY early years of the web.
“Even if it is just friends, or even friends of friends...how far could these pictures go?”
Is that a serious question?
Once you go net, you can’t ever say nyet.
...oh, and about how far the pictures go...Planet Earth is about the extent as far as we know now, maybe light years from now people will be looking at those photos.
Contrary to many here, I cannot say for certain that the “internet is forever” when it comes to sites lke FB. you usually need to be approved before you can see photos of someone on FB so I do not believe the web crawlers place these pages in the internet archive if this is the case.
The only “advantage” you may have on your side, if you may call it that, is that your daughter’s pictures are probably a few among millions of pictures on Facebook, in total.
Your daughter being singled out because of the pictures, is not very likely, unless some unscrupulous “talent hunting” scouts for nefarious film-making companies use the pictures to help them search the people they want to recruit for their filming activities.
If I had a daughter, I wouldn’t allow her to put up such pictures of herself online. I would also explain to her why it is dangerous.
FB, just like MySpace are difficult to delete when it comes to pics. My GF’s accounts are pretty much locked in and it took a lot of communication with the mods to clean up the pics, but it’s not as bad as the bikini pics.
It’s forever as they say. The silver lining is that your daughter has the same name as another person on the web so they can de denied. Copy, paste, head to properties and paste the link. etc.
I assure you that I am not encouraging her...I am embarressed and ashamed. She no longer lives with me.
I wouldn’t put a picture of me wearing a snow suit and balaclava on the ‘net. But that’s just me. There’s way too much “information” on the ‘net. Everyone has access to it.
If she looks like Helen Thomas, no problem. Photos will probably be sent back to you.
beach pictures. Some posed.
So pictures on FB can be copied?
you’re lucky she doesn’t join Miss Mayem, Suicide Girls or one of those sites....I’d keep an eye on her...
How old is she?
She is over 18 and not listening to anyone these days.
I certainly wasn’t saying you were encouraging her, I was saying someone else might think you were doing the encouraging...authority types. If she does not live with you, than it is her problem.
You are a disgusting pig. You’re talking about your daughter!
I have used my FB photo’s to show them on other sites.... but my profile is public.. so I dunno about a private profile
Her current age is a significant factor.
I assume she’s a minor and don’t need to know.
She’ll likely get a lot of unwanted attention.
Prepare her to deal with it maturely and effectively.
search “employers look at facebook” and read the articles.
...and you are an idiot for not reading the post correctly.
You can copy any picture, even if a site does not allow one to right click and save it to your computer.
Shut your mouth and try READING.
Chickensoup’s concerned about what has already happened.
Move cursor over image. Right-click your mouse. Select "Save image as", and it will save to your PC, from where it can be uploaded where ever you want.
Depending on her age, teenage girls’ friends can be...fickle. Friends today, fiends tomorrow.
Even if a profile is set to “private”, someone with prior access that hasn’t been revoked and an axe to grind could make things uncomfortable for her @ school/work by making them available to others.
