Woman sues parents over pics shared on Facebook

BTN11: 18-year-old suing parents over FB photos

Parents may want to think twice before posting that cute photo of your child potty training on social media.

An 18-year-old woman in Austria is suing her parents over photos they’ve posted of her on Facebook. The Local in Austria reports the parents have allegedly posted 500 pictures of their daughter on social media since 2009.

Some of the photos are apparently personal in nature, showing her naked or potty training as a young child.

"They knew no shame and no limit and didn't care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot," the teen told Local. "Every stage was photographed and then made public."

The teen said she asked her parents to take down the photos, but they have refused. The teen’s father reportedly argues that since he took the photos, he has the right to publish them.

The case will be heard in November.
