Ask them to remove it, if they don't do it, report to facebook and get the picture removed.

I would be livid. Why did they do that to you? I would be demanding they take the photos and post down and I would be letting them know how p*ssed off I was with them.

Uummm... Why on earth put an address on there?

Agree with the PP.

That is an enormous invasion of your privacy.

Can I ask what the context was? Of posting photos AND your address? Posting photos on Facebook I can understand, but why on earth did they post your address?!

Like others have said I would ask them to take it down immediately, and report it to Facebook if need be.

They were asked to take it down the minute I discovered it, which was over 6 hours ago. It still hasn't been taken down with the excuse being they can't get to a computer. It certainly was made known that both DH and I are livid.

Evidently some people don't take childrens risk on the WWW seriously at all. Considering it was a close member of the family makes it even worse.

The photos were posted with "Address with my nephews"

Why on earth they would presume that it's ok to put an address on there is beyond me.

Can you maybe report the photos until they can get to a computer.

I'd tell them they were an idiot for posting any personal identifying information and demand it be removed.  You don't know who they are fb friends with or the privacy settings on their page.  Anyone could be seeing this.

That's really odd. I have never seen anyone put an address on a photo.

That's exactly why we hit the roof.

Neither have I. I have seen teenagers stupidly putting their own mobile numbers on FB but would expect much better from a 'mature' adult.

Just got a text saying "Post removed"

Holy cow! I would have been livid! And then even more livid again because 6 hours is a heck of a long time to not be able to get to a computer. That's a load of rubbish - it should have been priority to remove it. I would have found a computer - any computer - and removed it if I were them. How rude and atrocious.

How old are the people who posted them?

If you do a location tag on the photo it will come up with an address. Last time I locationed 'My House' one of the options was my actual address, my iPhone came up saying something like 'warning, why would you put an address on there, do these people know you are putting their address on there?' Perhaps they tagged it in this fashion?

#18 Guest_LeChatNinjah_*

They may not have deliberately posted the address - if they did it from a mobile phone and accidentally clicked the location button FB might have put that in for them.

Maybe.

Or perhaps they're just rather odd.

ETA - snap, Howdo

It most definitely wasn't a location tag. They even have the audacity to be angry with me and DH!

How close is this relative?
Sounds like a total tool.
