Thanks John. I did not think it would be your intention to cause offence but you know what some on here are like!

I fully accept the point you make about posted photos being used for nefarious purposes but that is not really the fault of Facebook is it. Social media is simply a tool like any other and can be used for good or ill. They do go out of their way to make sure that you are fully aware of how to keep your privacy settings to ensure your family photos are only shared with the people you want to see them. In the past, even with film cameras, you could get some perv in the developerís labs keeping the photos he wanted to distribute to his (or her I suppose!) dodgy mates. If you are going to blame Facebook for the proliferation of paedophilia then I think you may as well extend that blame to Messrs Kodak and Eastman!
