Posting your kid's photo to Facebook? Maybe think twice.
What does it mean for your kid's present and future wellbeing when thousands of photos showing every stage of their development have been handed over to a company that brushes off an acknowledgement its service may directly contribute to literal deaths before those same kids are even old enough to have a Facebook account? 

And how does Facebook protect those children from being categorized, monetized, and exploited by the same algorithms designed to track and profile its users — the company's entire raison d'être? Is the company that, despite all the evidence to the contrary, very publicly denies knowledge of the shadow profiles it actively creates, really the right corporate entity to which you should entrust to safeguard your child's life story?

Spreadsheets are dreams.
