Re: Make sure her page is closed to all but people in her network. Then at least the search engines won’t index the pictures in connection with her name.
I don’t **believe** they index them at all if the page is closed to just people she approves.
She is twenty and thinks she’s bullet-proof? I have no idea.
I had a very nice body at twenty but it was for my husband only.
Well on the upside she is at least wearing “some” clothes. Her “friends” are the only ones who can access her page yet it’s quite easy to cut and paste. Some kids have been busted for “Sexting” and slapped with serious charges...Hopefully she is of Age. Even though it’s embarressing to think of your child’s picture on the internet she will be the one that has to deal with the consequenses.
Bikini pictures, if tasteful, may be a minor issue. In general, however, its not a smart idea to post risque pictures of yourself on the Internet. As many have pointed out—it could end up anywhere.
Unless she wakes up, she'll probably let some boyfriend take nude pic's and those will go a long way.
Dad is worried about his daughter’s bikini pics posted on the internet and I’m the nut?
Take away her computer and shut down her website!
What is her reason for uploading pictures of her in a bikini?
There are plenty of stage moms and dads that will push their kids into modeling. What few I have dealt with have been mostly sane. I am not wild about working with teens as a rule. What little portfolio building I have done with/for teens have been casuals and headshots. For my protection, I have a camcorder going as my escort.
I could not pull her or her FB up with Google
If she is a conservative- she will have no chance of winning the Miss USA title or an elected office...
Try controlling a twenty year old who doesnt live with you.
MOM is worried about the pics...How does that make her a “disgusting pig”?

You didn’t mention earlier that she was an adult. In that case it’s none of your business.
Having just been through the college admissions process, I can assure you that the college boards look for embarrassing/illegal/dumb things. Not to mention attracting the perverts.
I donno..... Anyone can take a pic of you at the beach.
Photoshop, advertising porn, you name it.
Let her know, preferably before any drama comes up, that even though she made a mistake she’s not soiled, or ruined forever.
That way, if something does happen with the pics, she won’t feel like you’re going to say ‘I told you so!’ if she comes to you for comfort.
Some things just have to be learned the hardway. I was one of those kids, when told not to do something, was an open invitation to do it. I just hope that the pics are innocent and decent, as others have said; she could live to regret them very easily.
I am her mom and she is an adult who does not live with me and I am worried about what could be the downside.
Does she have a dad in the house?
Yes,I have a 22 year old daughter who has an account on facebook.Her account is private but I told her to be careful because of jobs.They have pics from the beach,hanging out etc..Just fun stuff.Tell her to make it private and she should be OK.
Precisely. You cannot access the page and neither can the web crawlers which scour (and archive) the pages.
Unless the pictures are very suggestive, IMO it is much ado about nothing.
Many of the people here operate out of fear from having heard something on Bill O’Reilly etc. There is much misinformation out there. I have pictures on the internet, videos etc. It simply takes good judgement.
Even Miss America contestants wear bikinis in competition. Women wear bikinis at the beach and are photographed with cell phone cameras by strangers with copies being sent everywhere. Your daughter is not a porn actress just because she posted a photo of herself on the Internet in a bikini.
There is no reason to become hysterical about it.
Lots of bikinis are sold at Wal-Mart to be worn in public so I wouldn't freak out.
Unless your daughter displays a jaw-dropping body when wearing a bikini, she probably won't raise an eyebrow on the Internet. There are literally millions of girls displayed in bikinis on the Internet.
How old is she? I have 3 daughters and we have the conversations frequently.
Also anything she says on social sites will be there forever. I am completely against all the sites like facebook, etc.
The main problem is we just don’t know where our government will end up and now with the new tools that Obama, et al want to use will try to connect the dots on what people will do.
People need to stop worrying about their personal vanity and they need to focus on protecting their personal information and assets.
She is an adult
They are bikini pictures. They aren’t lewd and “Girls Gone Wild” type stuff, she should be ok.
But they can be copied and pasted for eternity. Luckily, girls in bikinis aren’t as coveted as um, other pics.
There’s no point in worrying about what’s outside your own control.
Everything will probably be fine, and if it isn’t I’m sure you did your best.
I can copy and download any picture on FB ..haven’t found one yet...
I have pics on FB but, I’m ugly enough they’d be afraid to d/l them or network may crash... LOL
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.
I’d have to say completely depends on context. If she was wearing a bikini in a normal bikini setting (pool, beach, etc) then probably won’t matter, except to idiots.
Now if they were bikini pics as in “look at my body I’m in a bikini drool over me” then yea could be a problem later, unless that’s her goal in life.
Some cruel person might photoshop Sarah’s face to her body.
Jean - Why are you being so rude? A mom asked a question and all you can do is be hateful? Take your aggression out on someone else.
Chickensoup, I wouldn’t be thrilled if my daughter did that either (although mine is much younger) but I don’t think bikini pictures will ruin future employment opportunities, like drinking and partying might.
Can you just tell her what your concerns are? OR if you’re a friend on FB, go for the embarrassment factor and post chubby baby swimsuit pictures ;)
Well, for starters you should go here:http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1895740,00.html
Aside from that how many 18 yo’s keep all of their friends and acquaitances. Betrayals come only from those that have been trusted before. Dumped boy friends? On the internet you can be anyone you want to be. Are all of her web buddies people she knows in person?
All those cute personal details, cat’s names, high school, BFF,etc become data for phishing expediations to help gain access to financial accounts. Think about the security question on your bank, CC accounts.
Even worse are the predaors that use that information to get close to a target and she’ll never see it coming.
The global spread of the internet includes the ugliest places on the planet as wel las the ones comfortable to her.
Ask her if she would drive through the worst parts of your/her town at midnight with a spotlight on herself. she might get through but the license plate number is there for everyone to see.
So pictures on FB can be copied?
If she’s not nude, don’t worry about it. There are about a quintillion pictures of scantily clad girls on the net.
Just make sure she understands that their is always the chance of a serial killer out there that just likes her type. Posting much about yourself on the net is never a good idea, just for general principles..
No, they can only leave them on the site as they were posted. (or they can delete them)
It is enough of my business to ask what the downside is.
Makes sense, I will try.
That boycott certainly should include Facebook.
Its founders are using their wealth and Internet reach to keep fascists like Obama in power.
She lives with dad now. I was going to put a bug in his ear about it. He has some influence.
Does she want to get a job?
