Are there things you won't post on social media because of privacy concerns?

This week in Austria, an 18-year-old sued her parents in an effort to get them to remove her childhood photos from Facebook, the Telegraph reported.

“They knew no shame and no limits,” the woman told Austria’s Heute newspaper. “They didn’t care if I was sitting on the toilet or lying naked in the cot, every moment was photographed and made public.”

Her parents refused her requests to take the photos down. She is seeking a court order that the photos be removed as well as financial compensation.

So this week, we’d like to ask you: What will you not post on your personal (or work) social media because of privacy concerns? Will you post photos of your children, home or vehicle? Will you not tag others out of respect for their privacy? Have you tightly adjusted your privacy settings?

Read the answers to last week’s question: Have you ever been assigned to a case in an all-new practice area? How did you handle it?

Posted by NKY: “In a small attorney office for a governmental entity, I was often faced with a new area of the law to learn without much notice for a case or drafting documents or legislation. For a very quick education, check out the headnotes in the area of the law. It provided me with the knowledge for some immediate issue recognition and key words to quickly research current law.”
