This past weekend I posted a picture on Facebook. No big deal. What was a big deal – at least for me and my wife – is that I posted a picture of me and our ten year old daughter’s face.
As parents, we’ve got 2 choices: Shield our kids from technology, or help them embrace it responsibly. We chose the latter.
If you live in Canada (like me) and access the Internet through one of our popular ISPs like Bell, Videotron, Cogeco or Rogers and you want to enjoy music services like the amazing Pandora or use video streaming sites like Hulu, this is how to do it.
And while my social photo albums grow in size each day, they don’t include any pictures or videos of my kids’ faces. My issue isn’t so much with Facebook’s publicized private image security breaches of the past. This has everything to do with privacy, and protecting our children in ways our own parents never had to.
