Instagram is a photo sharing application which allows users to take a photo, apply a digital filter to the image to make appear aged, and then share it on a variety of social networking services. The application is currently available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Posting your child's pictures on any other site could put them at risk for victimization. There is no particular way to prevent your uploaded images from being copied, saved, and used by other individuals online. The only way to ensure that no one is using and saving your images is to avoid uploading them to the Internet. Even if you use coding to prevent users from right-clicking and saving your pictures, they can still screencapture the page the images are posted on.
Once an image is online, there is no getting it back.
The rules we tell children to follow when posting pictures online is to think before posting photos. Personal photos should not have revealing information, such as school names or locations. Look at the backgrounds of the pictures to make sure you are not giving out any identifying information without realizing it. The name of a mall, the license plate of your car, signs, or the name of your sports team on your jersey or clothing all contain information that can give your family's location away.
