Facebook buttonWe know not everyone is a Facebooker, but a high percentage of parents are, and this seems to be the easiest most fluid way for parents to share pictures and feel connected. Obviously any parents who upload pictures to the album are doing so willingly. This applies for Twitter too! Please remember to LIKE us on Facebook and Twitter!
