In a book review for The New Yorker, Hua Hsu takes a look at Leah Plunkett’s “Sharenthood: Why We Should Think Before We Talk About Our Kids Online,” which details the pitfalls of parents sharing private details of their children’s lives over the internet. Hsu writes that children’s consent and a general unconsciousness to potential data loss are two areas Plunkett sees going unconsidered as parents divulge their kids’ information. Plunkett describes “a set of questions, about data and privacy, that many of us already grapple with” but all “seems particularly nefarious in the context of children,” he said.
