New parents are ecstatic. Our babies are the best and we are over the moon every time our bundle of joy reaches a milestone. And we want to shout it out from the roof tops.
Roof top = Social Media status update.
Every single milestone in bits and bytes. Hundreds of photos from every single angle regardless of who's interested.
We can't help it. It's just too easy.
Facebook and other Social Media sites have become so much a part of our lives that it seems only natural that everything we do has to be on it. I mean did it really happen if its not on FB? Did my baby really turn over? Did it really eat mashed bananas today?
A friend of mine created an account for her baby soon after she was born. I'm not sure how this is possible (considering FB does have some rule where one has to be 13 years or older to have an account) unless you change the birth year. She felt it was an easy way to share pictures and updates with a close circle of friends.
OK maybe the baby can grow up and decide if he really wants an account. But you still can create a Facebook page for your baby.. and get 'Likes'. (I think we all do it for the likes, BTW).
Or create a FB scrap book for your baby where you can keep all his photos in a central location. Which sounds like the same thing as keeping it in your photo album in the first place.
What do you think about sharing everything about your baby online? Do you think a baby should have a Facebook or Twitter account?
