We live in a world where almost anyone can access our information we share on social networking.
That’s scary, especially when it coms to our teenagers, our children.
I know the rules, I know how to set my privacy settings. I don’t share photos that would be considered private to our family. I don’t post them on Facebook, Twitter, or any other site that you might share photos on and some might claim I have a slight addiction to.
Do my kids follow the same rules?
With their settings they do because I set them up and I monitor what they are posting online, but what if there was a simple way for them to share those pictures with approved family and friends easily?
Set them up their own outmywindowTM account after downloading the app for them. I can link my kids to multiple family members and explain to them that I approve friends and friend requests. Then they can share those pictures with just people you have approved. They aren’t floating around in cyberspace for search engines to find and index.
While I might have an addiction to another photo sharing app, this one is perfect for my kids. Neither of my oldest kids are allowed to have an account with another app that shall remain nameless yet. They have Facebook but neither of them use it for picture sharing. Using the other app, even if you aren’t friends with someone, if you enter the right search terms and those are in your child’s photo description, it will pop up for complete strangers to see.
Just another way to fight oversharing (which I have been accused of, but honestly, I promise, I am choosy and don’t share every picture I take of my kids) and unwanted strangers seeing your child’s pictures.
I have been hired by Warner Bros WBWord division to raise awareness for ‘outmywindow™.’
