I have a friend who dislikes Facebook (I am not sure if it is just because or what) but she gets really annoyed when friends post pics that she is in on Facebook. I guess I can see that. It's not like when you had photos and there was limited sharing. Now so many more people will see them.

I have a huge problem with it. I would be extremely angry if I saw pictures of me somewhere. Imagine if someone took pictures of your kids and put them up somewhere.

No.

I would attend the opera with you regardless of what you wore, springcurl.

Even your skates.

I really don't like it. Yes I look at the odd folks on People of Walmart so I guess I'm a hypocrite. But I just don't like the idea of taking pics of strangers just for fun. I rarely ever take pics of people unless they are family, friends, or at least people I'm hanging out with (like at a Harley or Jeep event). I will take a pic of someone's awesome shoes or hair or purse. But that's about it.

What Honeycurls said. I'd immediately lose respect for someone who posted pics of strangers on facebook so he/she could make fun of them. IF they're going to do that, they should at least have the decency to blur the face. Can you imagine becoming some sort of bad fashion meme?

I also hate it when my friends post and tag pics of me on facebook. I'm decently photogenic, but sometimes someone will come to one of my band's gig and take pics, then upload them and tag them to the band's fb page. I HATE some of those pics. They always choose the ones where I've got my eyes closed or am making a weird concentration face. Then it's there for everyone who looks at the band page to see. Ugh.

I don't take pics of strangers at all, if I can help it. I have been known to wait and wait and wait for a public place to clear out so that I can snap a pic of just my subject and no one else.

It's not illegal to take pics of strangers in public venues, but, if you're doing it to riducule them in some way, it's a really scummy thing to do.

Why are you friends with these people who do this again?

Friends only on FB. this woman was my daughter's wedding photographer and she friended me shortly after the wedding. The only time I've ever spoken to her in real life was at the wedding.

I'm quite glad to not know her in person.

A professional photographer does this? That seems bad for business... so if she takes your picture and thinks you are fat or unfashionable or something, can you have confidence it won't end up being ridiculed on the internet?

I think taking someone's photograph is fair game in any public place or place into which the public is invited. Hence why I had no sympathy for the William and Kate complaints about the honeymoon photos on the beach, but did for the ones taken in the private yard. However, I think it's really rude and lacking in character to take the pictures of strangers and post them on line to mock them. My cousin in NYC does this all the time - she takes pictures on the subway and facebook talking about how fat they are or what a hot mess their clothes or hair are, etc. S" she's family - and I have probably called her out on it 100x with no effect, so now I just blocked her from my news feed. I especially hate it when people do it to their kids.

I do not like the people of walmart site (total classism) and did not like the pregnancy photos one for similar reason. There are plenty of thin, middle class or wealthy people who wear unflattering clothes or have bad expressions on their faces or look totally ridiculou with their spray tans, designer clothes they wear just for the label but don't suit at all, bleached hair etc. but we're so used to seeing that, it's not as easy prey as someone who is - gasp - fat and unable to afford new clothes so they are bursting out of their pants a bit. Hahahahaha.

This reminds me of the other thread about the woman who did wa not remove body/facial hair for religious reasons (some posted a picture of her on Reddit).

Her response was perfect and I think it applies here. Public finger pointing, shame, and humiliation is just mean and strangers don't know a person's life or why they look or act certain way.

I only take photos without explicit permission if it's clear that people are pulling a crazy stunt in the hopes of getting on Youtube or something.

If it's just someone wearing an interesting costume (gothic lolita, for example), I'll ask if I can take a picture.

Otherwise, I don't take photos of strangers.

I love taking pictures, but I do not often take them of strangers. If its an interesting scene they happen to make or be a part of, and I'm at a distance, I might. Otherwise they might pose and ruin the moment. If I am close I always ask if they mind. I do that every halloween, and it's never to make fun of anyone. Only because I find it/them/their costume interesting.

Taking pictures of strangers and posting them to belittle is immature and unkind.

I'm the least photogenic human ever in the history of humans. My poor son tried to take a pic of my hubs and me the other night, and it was horrific--sorry...delete! There is or was a FB privacy setting you can activate that allows you to approve or deny tagged photos of yourself before the tag is visible to others. Sounds like something you might want to look into. You know mine is activated...

In our case, he is (was) my husband's "friend" and is an important business contact. But, he has shown his ash to us in more than one way recently, so we no longer consider him a friend, but he is still, unfortunately, necessary as a business contact.

It was probably me wearing the pink velmour track pants tucket into cowboy boots. I've totally been known to do that on the weedend if I'm working. It's not a fasion statement or anything. It's just a matter of what I can get my hands on first that is clean. There's usually no one at the office on Saturday and it's a who gives a care what I look like time.

I went to pick my kids up at school the other day. Teal Old Navy sweatpants, brown Uggs, and a 90210 t shirt. And I wasn't even embarrassed. I wonder if my picture got sent to someone in a mocking fashion.

Seriously, unless your clothes are falling apart with holes, or body parts are hanging out, who cares? Oh, and you should somewhat coordinate colors too. But other than that, I will not be mocking.

Particularly when the person's face is in the picture - it bothers me less when someone just posts a picture of some crazy shoes or something.

^ This. I don't take pictures of people but if I did, it would be because I admire something about the person...I'm very into beauty/fashion and I'm artistic. If I see a woman with gorgeous hair or something, I'm completely inspired and I wish I could capture that in a picture. Sorry if I sound creepy (I promise I'm not!)

I don't see the point in taking a picture of some stranger simply to mock them on the Internet. That's just cruel. Like with the Sikh woman with excessive facial hair who was photographed without her consent and her picture was uploaded to Reddit...at least the person who took the picture and posted it apologized to her.

But I wonder how often this happens. People of Walmart, anyone? While I do have my personal opinions about the way I see many people presenting themselves in public (sloppy/dirty/wearing clothes that are inappropriate or too small on a very large person) I would never try to shame anyone by making fun of them or taking pictures of them. It's just not right.

This is also why I told my cousin to stop posting half-naked pics of herself on Facebook. She is a grown woman, but not everyone wants to see your butt in a thong on a social networking site...and you don't know where the pictures will end up. All the men who "like" her pics are perverts. She is also not in the best physical shape, so that might open her up to some criticism and cruelty from people who find it funny to pick on larger women.
