I would strongly suggest she cancel herself from any FaceBook or other such sites........
FWIW, a friend invited me to join FaceBook or some such site but in doing so it would require me to provide info that I have no wish the rest of the entire world having access to. In fact, I have already contacted him to remove me as a "friend" and to remove any pictures of me as his friend that he may have posted on his site...........
From what I’ve read looking for approval from other men and having sex early is very very typical of daughters in divorce situations. She needs Dad and lots of him. Good luck...
This is what I was wondering, How accessble the pics are, Sounds like anyone who can see her site has access to copying the pics.Yes. And once someone has a copy, there's really no limit on how/where one can "distribute" it. A great deal of damage can be done before criminal charges, and/or a civil suit gets resolved if things get that sideways. Why not send her the link to this thread and let her read it for herself. Hang in there, Mom and keep fighting the good fight for your little girl. :)
You are absolutely correct along with top people at Google as well. You better believe the organizations are helping Obama, et al with information and whatever else Obama wants to know about you.
Just read the disclaimers on the sites...no one in their right mind would sign on these agreements.
If you think your gmail and g-docs are private...think again.
She is just posed, but there is more skin than modesty permits.
She didn’t post them, her daughter did, or did you catch that point?
Hey, at least she wasn’t wearing a peace sign.
I have the posed on a towel naked baby pictures but probably would get run in for child porn. I think I have seveeral of the skirted swimsuit pics.
Well the “private” account features on facebook are not really private. Here is the issue...if you access any of the 3rd party “games”, “apps” they have access to some of your account information even if it is marked “private” and quite frankly you know NOTHING about the app developers and what they are doing with your facebook info...that you think is private.
Also keep in mind if they link your profile to other “non-private” profiles and those profiles have “bad” things in them...well as they say...the crowd you keep...
That has occurred to me.
Didnt know that. Leftist turkeys are everywhere
Job...you mean a real job? Not the counter job she has in the summer? Who knows?
Is this a rhetorical question? Face Book pictures can go as far as you can imagine. It’s like posting an ad, saying I’m hot. Take a peek. It’s sad when I young girl thinks that her body is the best thing she has to offer the world.
She could end up here, with freepers determining her guilt, or worse yet, she may be photoshopped with a pancake on her head!!
Nice put down.
I’m an old person who doesn’t get it. A hundred something responses to this? Bikini pictures? What the heck is the big deal?
You can also find out if she is already out there. Google for her using the name/nickname she uses, then filter search with additional pieces of information she has on her FB page. You all might be surprised.
I doubt anyone that puts a box around his responses, could be net-passive.
Nothing comes up from face book. I used her name and face book and the school she attends.
If she is over 18 and the situation was bikini appropriate, it seems fine as long as she knows that many employers will check that. Pretty much everyone I know have something like this on Facebook. We have some memorial day photos where we went boating with friends and most folks where dressed like that, including my wife, you go on boars in the lake, you sure don’t wear suits. I think my pastor’s family even has pool pics on FB.
There is a lot of hyperbole on this thread. Wow.
If she is in a normal run of the mill bikini she is just like millions of other young women on facebook and myspace.
The photos could potentially be used for nefarious purposes I suppose, but I don’t know how likely that really is. After all there are plenty of people in the world who willingly do those things.
I’m quite sure any potential employer would guess that any potential employee has been to the beach/lake at some point and was probably wearing a swimsuit of some type. If that were actually enough to have someone disqualified from a job they wouldn’t have anyone to hire.
Overall I would guess that the chances of the negatives spouted off on this thread like near certainties actually happening at very slim. Wearing a bikini in a picture and putting that picture on fb isn’t exactly a huge moral failing.
How old is she? Tell her that interviewers and college application (admissions people) look at FB.
Not good what is on the itnernet is forever.
any picture can be copied off the internet.
How can they find her, it doesnt come up with google or google images. and it is private setting
Anywhere on Earth, for now. To other planets, when the Internet gets there.
Well, if you feel that way have her remove the image and tell her why she is to remove it.
well, then don’t worry about it. But you should caution her.
When I search Google images with her name and FACEBOOK. Nothing of hers comes up at all.
brain dead and twenty and not living at home.
Untold numbers of women have pictures of themselves in bikinis on the internet because...women wear bikinis...and this does not make them whores or porn stars, nor do all of them meet their end within days at the hands of a serial killer. And believe it nor not, most employers and college admission boards are aware of this.
Thank you for all your help. 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.
To be honest I know nothing about facebook.All my kids and most of the older grandkids are on it.I just know that they all have private accounts and nice pages.But your right you have to be careful.
My 17 year old cousin has a photo of her in a bikini.. its neither threatening nor suggestive in anyway.. she is a georgeous girl to boot. She is almost like my daughter in a real way rather than my younger cousin
But I am not worried for her.. she lives in a very down to earth home with good conservative parents. Anyone messes with her, she will make sure they are very very sorry.. then the mom and dad gets involved.. Oh god.. look out!
I was asking what the downside was...
Being that she’s 18 years old not much you can do, however, she should be careful when she starts sending out Christmas cards of herself.
As most have said, what seems innocent and harmless today may not seem so in the future.
The worst thing is the lack of control as to what happens to the files. You just do not know.
I advise my daughter thus; do not have photos taken of you with a glass in your hand, do not have photos of you smoking anything, do not have photos of you with PDAs of either sex, DO keep an eye out for backgrounds of photos. She is 30 and can do what she wants but I tell her, you just don’t know.
My grandmother gave me the advice that was passed down to her about the glass of adult beverages.
I’m not worried — I LOVE Big Brother.
I’m not familiar w/ those personalized website but I would think you can just right-click and ‘Save As’ to your computer. Not sure about that but that would be my guess.
Try controlling a 14 year old boy who does.
She should know that any time she applies for a job, her potential employer will be checking the social networks. So will potential boyfriends and potential in-laws.
They could go viral...depending on how many friends she has in her network, and then how many friends her friends have.
