I don't think that posting things online is 'safe'. But I also don't mind having pictures of my kids on FB either, it doesn't worry me. It would worry me if I had my address and phone number on facebook and pics of my kids...lol. then again if somebody really wants to it isn't hard to find that info either.

Are you sure she was using someone else account to get them and someone didnt give them to her? I dont know if I find it odd per say she is related to you, I know my MIL and several other family members take them off FB as well because they need pics of my kids.

Re: Printing off photos of your relatives children....a question

It is kinda weird but not 'alarm' weird. When I was single, I had dozens of my sister's kids/family pics in my apt. They were just the cutest pics I had. Now they're replaced with my own. Keep an eye on her, maybe when your LO loses her cuteness the pics will be replaced by the new newest baby. DH has also DLed pics of friends' babies off FB to show me later, he never gets the pics of older kids, just new babies cuz they're cute (but also, he doesn't print them out and plaster our house with them...)

Re: Printing off photos of your relatives children....a question

Yes. I think it's weird, and very creepy. It's almost just like the situation I was having with DH's aunt (who I don't know from Adam). She would repost my pictures to her wall! She's never met my kids! I don't know or understand the motive, and quite frankly, don't want to. My best guess is she (my case and yours) wants to make evidence for a relationship that doesn't exist. If someone cones over and sees her collage of your daughter, it looks like you two are besties!

I ended up blocking DH's aunt, grandmother, & his aunt's second profile. Then I put strict limits on who can see my pictures & statuses.

I guess it isn't a HUGE deal....I just think the whole thing is fishy. A person shouldn't use another person's password. I also find it odd that there were so many photos there especially in comparison with the other kids in the family. It just gave me the creeps.

Re: Printing off photos of your relatives children....a question

I think it's weird because she has to use someone else's password to get to those pics. If she had an account and were allowed to see them, it wouldn't be quite as bad.

I have an aunt on FB who I'm not at all close with (mostly because she broke off contact with our family for about 15 years) that I've had to place pretty big privacy restrictions on...in that by default she doesn't see my status updates or anything posted on my Wall. Among other things, she got offended by a joking comment one of my close friends made to me. Anyway, I recently saw she had reposted a video of my son on her FB page and it struck me as kind of creepy, but I had sent her links to web albums and where I keep those videos, so I figured I can't really say too much. She also did a couple of those "make your online photos into a book" thing for us of just my son...but she sent them to us. If she had been doing this sort of stuff with pictures she DIDN'T have access to, I would be very upset and weirded out.

if the other person is allowing it then there is nothing wrong with it.

It sounds like only 2-3 pics are actually from facebook. Someone could have printed them off & given them to her. Without asking you don't really know if she is the one who actually took them off.

I agree with this mama....I would have walked in and been like, oh wow, where did you get all the pictures of the baby from?

I never give them to her though. It just rubs me the wrong way and I'm not handing over a cd full of photos or giving her copies of everything I have taken. Yeah right. Most moms don't even do that with the relatives they are really close with.
I would give my mother or IL's a CD of the baby or grandparents, siblings, but not a relative that I am not even close with...that seems a little weird. Some people like pictures though, and maybe she is trying to have a better relationship with you??
