I am a new mom and want to create an Instagram account for my baby. I plan to post her photos and hand the account over to her when she is 16 or 18. Some of my friends said maybe it was a bad idea. What do you think?

I’m not a fan of this idea either. You shouldn’t use a child’s face or personality to attract an audience, especially in the digital world. This is why there are new rules for minors when it comes to content creation. It’s always safer not to let your kids get involved in social media until they can make their own decisions. You also don’t want to affect your relationship with your child in the future.

When is it okay to call an ex on social media?

It’s never a good idea; some things need to be kept personal and romantic relationships are at the top of this list. I learned this the hard way. Always try not to talk about your relationship (s) online until things are concrete and never talk about your ex; that the past remains in the past.
