Precautions to be taken while uploading your Photographs online

The practice of sharing pictures of kids and family members online is a relatively new phenomenon.

For example, when popular mom-blogger Heather Spohr was contacted by the police in 2010 about an innocent photo of her daughter that was found on a computer that contained "indecent images of children", she was both stunned and afraid.
