I just thought I'd start the debate on the opinion of people announcing their pregnancy on Facebook, mainly through the use of first scan photos and posting further scan photos and whether PF members feel it right to do or something that should kept private to themselves and family and close friends? I've started this thread as a discussion and not intended to cause any arguments but to just see how other people think and their view on the matter. Each person's opinion is completely their own on the topic and one that I think should be respected. My personal opinion of posting scan photos on Facebook is that I wouldn't do it and haven't done. My decision to keep my scan photos private to just my family and very close friends was mainly due to having people on my Facebook account who I wasn't really fond of but kept on as it saved myself the hassle of starting arguments and being accused of being "pathetic" for deleting them as a friend. I think the reasoning why I also didn't do it was because as I'm going to be a young mum I was frightened of how people would make nasty comments and jump to conclusions about my pregnancy. In hindsight I should probably have not cared so much from the start and been proud that I was pregnant but I still at the same time am glad that I didn't show the scan photos as they have been kept as something precious between me and OH and both sides of the family that will last even when LO has arrived.
