Ok, so I realize this is a sensitive subject because everyone has their own opinion and I'm trying to avoid truly offending anyone. So I will start by saying this - what you do on Facebook is your choice, but it is also your "friends" choice to block your feed if you over share.
Before I was a parent, I was one of those people that said I wouldn't do this or that when it comes to posting things about my son, but alas I've become a hypocrite and find myself doing things I said I wouldn't do. Thus is life, right? However, I always try to be aware of those who are reading my feed and limit how much baby stuff I share because at the end of the day I don't want people blocking me. I'm sure plenty of my friends have already done so, but I'm glad that it's all anonymous because I my heart would sink if I knew...then I would just feel really bad for over sharing.
Mashable shared this article about sharing things on Facebook that directly relates to babies. On Twitter people expect you to over share...it's like Twitter was created specifically for all the thoughts you have in your head but never say out loud. With Instagram, people expect to see what you eat, what you're wearing, pictures of your child and so much more - but with Facebook there's truly a different set of rules and they're making me a little self-conscious about what I share. So while I know there are a ton of "rules" that have been shared, rules are meant to be broken and as Bobby Brown says, it's your prerogative to do what you want to do (on your social sites in this case), but just know that what you share could have people purposely shutting you off....literally.
