One mother has said parents who post photos of their children online 'just don't know what's going to happen' with them.
It comes after broadcaster Síle Seoige said she no longer posts photographs of her son on social media.
"We've made the decision not to share Cathal's full face online anymore when he turned three, as at that age kids are very distinctive.
"Everybody's different - this feels right for us", Seoige said.
Emma from Tipperary is a mother of two and told Lunchtime Live she always airs on the side of caution.
"My general rule is if I post photos on social media that my account is private only to my friends," she said.
"Otherwise, I don't believe it's really a good idea to share publicly because you just don't know what's going to happen with those photos or who has access to those photos."
'It makes me feel uneasy'
Emma said this has always been the case for her.
"This was always the situation; it was something I just was very conscious of from day one," she said.
"We're all aware that photos of children getting into the wrong hands is a recipe for disaster.
"It makes me feel uneasy in the knowledge that if somebody I didn't know had access to photos of my children, worst-case scenario obviously, it could lead to harm being caused."
She also said the inability of children to consent to their image being used could create issues "later in life."
'Still figuring it out'
Podcaster Caroline Foran said she believes this is an important conversation to have.
"I have posted my son, I do post my son who's just over two now," she said.
"I think the technology and the way we interact with it is still so new that we're still all very much figuring it out.
"We won't know yet the long-term impacts, and I think we're constantly all revising and questioning what we do.
"I'm looking at stuff I posted from when my son was born thinking: Would I do that now?"
Caroline said she is "totally open" to changing tactics.
"When I first had my son... I was in such a fragile place emotionally that for me, when I was posting and sharing, I felt it actually really helped me cope better to reach out to other mothers and talk about what I was going through."
She said herself and her husband "regularly have conversations where we've checked in with each other and said what we are and what we are not comfortable with."
