Do you ask people before uploading their photos onto your Facebook page?
This past summer I attended a party given for my mother’s birthday. A bunch of family members attended and I took pictures at the event. I uploaded them to Facebook. Two of the photos had my aunt in them. She’s a very attractive woman in her early 60’s, posh, great body, beautiful clothes (the rich man’s wife). She called me today and sounded annoyed that she saw her photos on Facebook. She said “how could you put photos of people up there without asking them?” I apologized and quickly deleted the two photos with her in them, at her request. She said it would be like if she posted photos of me before I had weight loss surgery and I might feel embarassed seeing them. I said no, I would not, as I post such photos of myself. We didn’t have an argument, as I complied with her request.
I am just curious (based upon her question of “how could you put photos of people on Facebook without asking them?”) if others ask everyone before posting photos on Facebook.
For the record, my privacy settings are such that only my friends can see my photos, although, like she pointed out, someone could take their phone and show others the photos that they can view.
