Dating scrapbook pages

Sometimes I let my Facebook contacts have a peek into my (and more importantly, his) life by posting an image to friends on the social network. (Full disclosure: while writing this story I found one public photo, which has since been deleted.) And there is no digital sharing of naked baby photos, ever, under any circumstances.(Those are being saved to make him squirm in front of his prom date.) I’ve taken this approach to my son’s digital life because, while he has begun to develop certain preferences over the past months (for instance, he loves the light blue blanket when it’s time to catch some sleep), he hasn’t yet told me how he’d like to handle his online identity.

If the file has been modified from its original state, some details such as the timestamp may not fully reflect those of the original file.

The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.

Facebook introduced a new feature earlier this week aimed squarely at new parents, a subset of users who annoy the heck out of their friends by posting an unending stream of baby pictures.

Billed as “a new way to organize photos of your child on Facebook,” the new scrapbook feature lets parents tag their little ones in photos wherever those pictures end up, like in your mobile uploads album, timeline photos, imported Instagram shots, or even your profile and cover pics.

But I’m also very judicious about how I share photos of the kid.

I mostly show off my boy through a shared i Cloud photo album, so my special moments stay off social networks altogether.

If she wants to post things that her friends will actually see, like, or respond to, she uses the other sites and services. This new scrapbook feature is an obvious attempt to nip that issue in the cradle.

The idea is that if parents start tagging their children now — even though, legally, those kids cannot have an account — they’ll want to join the conversation when they come of age.

This is my Facebook account, my son, and most importantly, my life, and I want to share it with my friends. Tomorrow and in the future, he will be his own person, and he should be the one to choose if he has an online identity. Update: A Facebook spokesperson says there aren’t any plans to “automatically transfer all the photos from a scrapbook into a 13 year old’s new account.” “As part of this pilot, we’re exploring how to provide newcomers with the control and tools they need to choose whether photos in their scrapbooks become part of their presence on Facebook,” the spokesperson added.
