You Share Pics of Your Pet or Baby Doing Extremely Un-Extraordinary Things

Do you really need to share pictures of your baby or pet doing everything from sleeping to eating messy food to making poopy? Even your dog’s own mother would be bored by this.

“Although that sort of stuff can get cloying fast -- particularly for those who are not parents or pet owners -- the online appetite for anything involving a cute little creature is limitless, as witnessed by the zillions of hits certain YouTube videos get, despite the fact that their baby or pet subjects are not doing anything remotely remarkable,” says Farley.

“What does stun me is the number of ultrasounds to be found on Facebook or Twitter. I do not think it’s appropriate for a parent-to-be to upload an image so intensely personal to the web.” Now if your baby is able to do stupid pet tricks in utero, that’s something we’d like to see.
