Oversharing Online: A Moms Matter Google Hangout (VIDEO)

Video 1

Moms MatterIf there's one subject The Stir's bloggers know well, it's oversharing online.

Whether we're writing about other moms and dads who do it or we're guilty of it ourselves, it's a topic we think about all too often here at CafeMom -- and now that it's captured the media's attention, we decided it's a great time for us to gather together and talk about it as well.

Check out our Google Hangout on the topic of Oversharing Online after the jump.

There's a lot to think about in this video.

From parents oversharing about their kids to parents oversharing about themselves and their relationships, our words can have far more of an impact than we probably imagined when we published that blog post or status update.

And now that Facebook status updates, Twitter updates, and blog posts are regularly being used in divorce cases, it may make a few moms and dads out there think twice before they jokingly share about what a rotten parent they are.

I think everyone needs to be more aware about what they share on line but if you are willing to share it with the world you shouldn't be shocked when it comes back to bite you in court.  I only know one person that lost custody of her children because of what was shown on her facebook and she had no business having custody of those kids all her facebook page did was provide proof of her lies.  What amazes me is when mom's share in posts what bad mother's they are.  FYI your two year old knowing how to say more curse words than words she needs to actually communicate  isn't cute or funny and  you should at least be smart enough to be ashamed of yourself.
