have just been on face book and discovered my x has a profile listed there. looking through i have found he has posted his full name and dob, he has posted the place that we live in and the place he works, but worst of all and this has made me really mad and i cant understand his thinking, he has posted photos of our son. together with the other info that he has posted i find this totally irresponsible. facebook can be seen and images printed and forwarded to just about anyone. if he wanted his details posted on this kind of site then that is his business but why post photos of our son together with the town in which we live also connected to it.
any comments about how you would feel and what i should or can do about this, i am so upset and maddened and sickened that my beautiful son is there for god knows who to look at, and it is his father that has put his face on this kind of site.
