Facebook etiquette 101

As far as social media goes, there's nothing more surprising (and at times alarming) than seeing your photo - or worse - your kid's photo pop up unannounced in your Facebook stream. Surprise! You've been tagged. And, hmmm, even though it's a gorgeous photo, you weren't warned ahead of time.

The thing is, I know it's 2013, but many parents still do not post photos of their kids on the Internet, and there are many who do post photos but want to be in control of those photos, or at least see them before 100 other people do.

And hey, don't feel bad if you've practiced poor photo-sharing etiquette in the past. We're all still learning in this fast-evolving world of social media. Click on for our Facebook photo-sharing etiquette guide!
