The Atlantic look into the phenomenon of “Sharenting” the practice of parents sharing lots of videos and photos of their children online.

 

In this video we find out about the ethics of the practice. It questions whether it’s right or wrong for parents to share hundreds of images of their children before they’re old enough to consent to it. Before children can even talk, they’ve already got quite a big online footprint, which they don’t have any control over. It’s big business too, with Instagram influencers bombarding us with pictures and posts of their little ones for likes.

The video looks at how courts are fighting for the rights of children, with some countries already introducing legislation which lets kids “be forgotten” from the web. It looks a the future of our rights online and how they might be different in years to come. It’s a hot button issue that definitely divides opinion and this video does a brilliant job of explaining the nuances and complications of sharenting.
