e-Safety Tip - Sharing Photos Online

One of the more heartwarming, life-affirming aspects of social media is being able to share special moments in our children’s lives with family and friends: from the first day at school or blowing out birthday cake candles to smiling holiday selfies and cute Christmas costumes.

This guide runs through some safety considerations when sharing images.
