Social media debate: Should babies have Facebook accounts?

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

They say the younger generation is moving off of Facebook and onto social media sites like Twitter and Instagram, but it turns out the youngest users of all may still be on Facebook.

A number of parents have tried to set up Facebook pages for their babies; in some cases, babies who haven't been born yet.

Some parents say it's a great way to keep friends and family up to date on a baby's progress -- or an expectant family.

But critics say it turns into an online case of TMI. There's concern about how to get rid of potentially embarrassing posts down the line and, of course, questions about kids and cyber safety.

Chicago social media attorney Daliah Saper joins FOX 32 to talk about baby pages in the online community.
