AN INTERVIEW WITH RTÉ’s Claire Byrne in today’s Sunday Independent reveals that she will not share photos of her three children anywhere online.

The subject deals with issues regarding lack of consent and the inherent security issues prevalent with online data sharing.

On the other side, a pleasure of parenthood can be the sharing of images of babies and toddlers with other loved ones who might not otherwise ever see them.

Poll Results:

No (9076)
Yes (2922)
Not sure / Don't know (1790)
