My children have been photographed on numerous occasions by an adult male as per their FB ID. The pictures were posted to the FB Group Jamestown Pa Online while they are either swimming. Paddle boarding or boating at Pymatuning State Park in Jamestown Pa. The first time after continued polite complaints to the administrators and reports to FB. The initial photographs taken directly after our children had gotten out of the water and changed on our boat we’re removed. Towels were held up of course but no parent anticipates especially in the middle of a lake on a boat a man with a camera pointed at them for FB likes stalking the shoreline. 

The Groups administrator feels it’s their right and it’s not illegal to post unauthorized pictures of underaged children or anyone else.  It also does not go against facebooks policies for some reason. All rights and no responsibility. One administrator did agree with us in private. My Wife and I were removed from the group after more pictures of our children n family on the lake were posted and I asked “Please stop taking pictures of my children” I was Removed and Banned for being a concerned parent. I was notified that The group admin made a post regarding the incident downplaying the situation and allowing comments vilifying and making fun of us as parents. They were more concerned the page may be removed by FB than the unauthorized images of children. The absurdity is astounding. No person should feel violated in public through unauthorized images being used on social media. Especially children. The allowance of these unauthorized images does not promote anything good or wholesome and these groups only enable these people to continue. Whatever their motive. 

It is our goal to see that this doesn’t continue on social media and Children as well as Adults are protected. 

I have not found any laws Currently protecting unauthorized use of personal images online or against strangers taking photographs of you or your children. Any new information on the matter is welcomed. Contact social media outlets and local politicians to voice your opinion on this matter.  I ask everyone to be polite and kind in this venture.
