She Posts Nothing About Her Daughter

Look at any parents' Facebook page or Instagram account and you'll see lots of photos of their children. Amy Webb thinks that's a bad idea.

As she explained on my America Weekend show, not only are you sharing too much about your kids, but you're exposing them to security risks and a future where their digital identity has already been determined (and can't be erased). When Webb and her husband had a child, they went to far as to make sure that the name they chose wouldn't be the same as some embarrassing domain name -- and while they're set up accounts for their daughter with most of the major online services, they have yet to post a single thing about her.
