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.

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.
