Employers are sometimes checking online personas, especially if they are obvious, same name and perhaps photos, and it can affect their views on a person. I wouldn't like some rash online content of mine to lose me a role.Can’t think of any job I have had mind where my social media postings have come up. Not sure why they’d be a problem anyway.
That’s understandable. But I’ve never been to able to work in roles where a LinkedIn profile (to my knowledge) would be relevant. I’ve managed to work in roles that are either low wage (retail, childcare) or are reserved for ‘people like me’ (eg paid ‘user-involvement’ oporutnities).And for that matter, when I can work out who I am going to be interviewed by I always check their LinkedIn profile so I know 1) who I am dealing with and 2) some hints at suitable small talk that might keep them interested.
I've really no idea where you're going with this. Who is "taking photos of strangers for money" (unless you mean all commercial photographers, everywhere - and even then there are laws about the use of such photos) and what has it to do with the original article that started this thread?No doubt editor will be along shortly to tell me why him taking photos of strangers for money is perfectly fine but me putting a pic of one of my kids on his website for free contravenes some sort of human right
Sometimes it does matter as I am sure you have the imagination to think of, for example where an abusive husband is trying to find out where his ex-wife and kids have gone to, or where a paedo looks at someone''s kids on fb as part of stalking them etc ..Why would it matter if someone has looked at them?
You seriously need to calm the fuck downTbh this is a ridiculous thread with a daft premise. You don't want to post pics if your kids or yourself, don't. But fuck if you can tell me whether I can put photos of my kids where I like. You silly fucking twats.
Given that we've all had parents, I'd hazard a guess and say it's perfectly possible for someone without kids to come up with an empathetic, reasonable and well argued point of view, just as it's equally possible that a parent can come up with a fucking stupid argument.It’s part of the discussion though isn’t it?
To what extent (if any) do parents have ‘rights’ with regard to ‘their’ children?
Can those of us without children understand the realities of parenting?
This topic will always elicit questions like this.
Yeah I agree. But this issue will, rightly or wrongly, come up in a conversation about parenting.Given that we've all had parents, I'd hazard a guess and say it's perfectly possible for someone without kids to come up with an empathetic, reasonable and well argued point of view, just as it's equally possible that a parent can come up with a fucking stupid argument.
