Dh and I are fairly careful with what we put on FB for various reasons. We haven't even "officially" announced this pregnancy on FB; we've made references in comments but nothing more than that. Anyway, last night, we decided to post a small announcement regarding the birth of the twins, along with 3 pics (one of each boy right after birth and one of dh--I did NOT want my pic posted). I also privately sent my sister two different pics of the boys, one of which showed Gaby in the NICU. So, of course, my sister takes those two photos along with a short announcement of their birth and posts them as *her* status...***?

I really dislike my kids photos being used/posted as others status' (sp?), especially when she "friends" anyone. Also, WHY would anyone post another persons birth announcement and kid's photos?! I know, I know...that's the risk I run using FB. Still annoying...think I'll sue her for copyright infringement.

'Ugh...'is right! Some people are so clueless! That sounds like something my sister would do ;P I'm sure she means well but I totally get where you are coming from.

I'm sure she was just excited, but I understand your frustration!

i get you 100%.

i had a meltdown in the hospital bc my parents and in-laws kept mass texting pictures of god knows what to everyone. i wasnt even being shown what pictures were being sent and still dont know who they were sent to. this is not ok. i have really strong feelings about keeping my children private and off social media until (at least!) they decide for themselves to opt in. regardless of how excited everyone else is, they were all aware of my feelings well beforehand, and i am STILL livid, over a week later, that this happened.

Ugh, that is really annoying! Are you able to talk to her about it? My sister isn't a big facebooker but if something like that happened I'd be able to talk to her about it and she'd take it down.

DH is a different story. The man is obsessed with fb. With DD there were so many pictures of me in the hospital. I didn't even realize it at the time. This time there will be no pictures without my approval. He can go check in at all the restaurants across from the hospital if he needs facebook activities to post.

I jokingly referenced it...well, not so much jokingly as passive-aggressively. She'd take them down if I asked to her to (and then wouldn't speak to me for a few months).

That's too bad. Most people I wouldn't be able to talk to about it and I'd just be super intensely irritated and keep it all bottled in. My sister is one of the few that I could just say Dude! Take it down! and she wouldn't even care.

How frustrating! I had to put a stop to family posting a bazillion photos of DD on FB. I just dont want her to have a million photos of her all over the place-- how are these kids going to feel when they are older?

I am so sorry people dont have more sense....so strange.

I was "that sister" once. My older sister got married. She hired a photographer. The photographer (and my sister) were nice enough to let me do a nice session with just my family (DH, DD, and DS). When she got the photos she gave them all to me to sift through. In the meantime, she posted her "wedding album." When I posted the ones of my little family, I also posted some others that I just loved of her, my mom, etc. She called me and said that she really thought about which ones would be "her album" and that the ones I posted she didnt like and felt she should be the one to chose them. I honestly didnt think about it that way. I was just so happy for her! But in hindsight I see why it upset her. I guess my point is - yeah, I am sure it is with good intentions.

Yeah, 30 years old, 4 kids, and has the emotional maturity of a 2 year old.

I post pictures of my kids, but it still bugs me when anyone else does it. *I* want to pick what goes up, *I* want control of deleting it if I decide to... My cousin babysits for us frequently and posts pics saying 'my boys' and it really gets under my skin...
