In today’s digital age, the rapid growth of social media platforms and the widespread sharing of personal information have given rise to a new phenomenon known as “sharenting.” Sharenting refers to the tendency of parents to extensively share information about their children online. This emerging trend has raised concerns about the long-term impact on children’s privacy. Is it worth destroying your children’s future because of your ego?
In a statement released on 4 January 2023 by the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC), which acts on behalf of the European Union, it is announced that a fine of €390 million has been imposed on the Meta Group (Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp).

Indeed, the purpose of GDPR is to make companies that process personal data more accountable, by giving European citizens more control over it.
