Why You Need to Stop Sharing Missing Kid Photos on Facebook

While there’s no doubting that social media plays a huge part in our lives, I try not to get addicted to it. In fact, I do my best to take as many offline breaks as possible for the sake of my own sanity. What’s more, I don’t share as many photos of my children on my Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. That’s because they are getting older and they might not necessarily agree with me sharing personal details and photos of their lives for my hundreds of social media friends and family to see. At least, I’m sure that’s how I would feel if I grew up with social media.

With all of that being said, there are plenty of people who share other children’s images – with or without their consent. And it’s not like they are doing it purposely, they are doing it in hopes that they can help locate missing children. But new reports indicate that if you see a missing child’s photo on Facebook, don’t share it. Here’s why.
