100 Hashtags Parents Should Avoid Using That Attract Online Predators

Hashtags help you organize your photos, but they can also be used by predators to find suggestive content of children.

James Fawks

Hashtags are everywhere, and thanks to the rise of Social Networking, they have become a part of our vocabulary. They are an excellent way for parents to organize their kid's photos, making them easier to search for later. However, some hashtags parents use may be putting their kids in harm's way.

The Child Rescue Coalition compiled a list of hashtags parents use that attract online predators to their children's photos (see below). These hashtags allow predators to find suggestive or compromising images of children in bikinis, using the bathroom, bathing, etc. You can find the full list of hashtags published by the Child Rescue Coalition here.

While some of the photos might be innocent to us, online predators will find them and share them with other predators. In a previous article, 4 reasons not to publicly post your children online, I describe a situation where Australia uncovered 45 million photos of children in a pedophile ring bust. While most of the images by themselves were not explicit, the comments associated with them were.

As parents, we need to make sure we are doing all we can to protect our children from online predators. We also need to be aware of how our actions can be jeopardizing their safety and privacy. Not all platforms are created equal, and some value privacy more than others. I started Photoprivy to ensure that my son's photos are shared only with close family and friends. Not with someone that might do him harm—protecting his online privacy and safety.
