Media & Safe Parenting: University of Michigan

Are you putting your children at a safety risk if you share too much about them on social media?

Researchers at the University of Michigan say you might be. They studied media and safe parenting and found that more than 50-percent of moms talk about their children on social media. And that parents who over share can pose privacy risks for entire families. Researchers say cyberbullying and a new trend called digital kidnapping are some common ways strangers have reportedly stolen and misused family photos. They add that parents should enjoy the benefits of digital camaraderie…but should be thoughtful about their child’s privacy.
