Safely Sharing Photos
I have a couple of friends who are all going to be having little ones this year (which is pretty exciting) and can’t wait to meet the new addition to their families.
Back in our day when we popped out of the womb, we were welcomed with flashes from film cameras. Fast forward to today and parents are posting pictures of their kids everywhere – websites, Instagram, Facebook, you name it.
Since this is quite the personal choice, some of my friends are already thinking about how they’ll want to share photos of their little ones, and they are opting on the side of caution. Essentially they want to share pictures with family and friends, but they don’t want pictures of their kid posted everywhere online.
I’ve been trying to find options for them that are either free or of low cost and include:
- Google Photos
- Instagram (make account private)
Granted, these are not the best and most secure, but if you want to be a little more secure, you can pay for a service such as SmugMug (which I use for clients and I love it).
So I come to you, my 1-2 readers, are there any other safe and secure online services you know of to share photos of kids (and no not Facebook)? Any information would be of help!
