Question: Is it unreasonable for my expecting wife and me to ask her family not to post pictures of our baby on Facebook once he's here? Among various reasons, as we are learning more and more every day, nothing is truly private, and in 20 years, our son may not want his baby pictures plastered all over the Internet; we want him to make the choice himself when he's old enough. In addition, we don't want some corporation to be able to use his image without asking, and especially in the case of my much younger sister-in-law, who friends people she doesn't know in person, we don't want potential predators to have access to our baby's face and information. Are we crazy for even wanting to ask this of my in-laws? - Anonymous
