Family Feuds Over Facebook Posting

There should be a category for “Facebook Fights” somewhere on Facebook. I personally know of a few families that had considerable altercations about something that had been posted by one of its’ members on Facebook. A family in Minnesota probably had some challenging dinner conversations after an uncle was sued for posting embarrassing photos of his nephew on Facebook. The lawsuit was dismissed by a district court that claimed the lawsuit had no merit.

Aaron Olson brought the harassment suit against his uncle after he posted a childhood photo of the youngster posing in front of a Christmas tree along with a not-so-nice  caption. The uncle refused to take the picture down, although he did agree to remove the caption.

Judge Natalie E. Hudson ruled that “to constitute harassment, words must have a substantial adverse effect on the safety, security, or privacy of another. Comments that are mean and disrespectful, coupled with innocuous family photos, do not affect a person’s safety, security, or privacy — and certainly not substantially so.”
