A week ago, I noticed someone on Facebook had been liking my pics and statuses on Facebook... rather obsessively. I also noticed that he had commented on all of Myla Rae's photos... they were all harmless comments like "cute baby", "sweet". That sort of thing.
But as the days passed, and this same guy would be liking and commenting on everything Myla Rae, I got an uneasy feeling about it. So I decided to just click on his profile to see who this guy was. At and I was quite shocked to see a photo of my baby on his facebook page. It's a photo taken from my FB album of my baby.
It's not a crime, of course. But I was a bit alarmed because I didn't know this guy at all (not even an acquaintance), and I did not know what his caption said (different language). Also found it very odd that when people commented on the photo to say "nice baby" "sweet baby"... he would respond with "Thank You".
HUH? Even if I shared a funny baby pic or cute animal pic on my FB, if someone said something nice about the baby or animal, I wouldn't respond with "thank you". Would you?????? So weird.
Translated... this is what his original caption for the pic he posted said.
At first I thought, is he saying this is his baby but he doesn't want people asking about her because he cannot say anything about her yet??
A FB friend of mine, who checked out the post, said that maybe I'm over reacting and he's not saying the baby is his in any way lah. Still, it made me uneasy.
And then another FB friend of mine who went through the pics in his profile, found a few pictures of naked children. And I find that quite alarming. I don't know, maybe they are innocent in nature, but to me, instinctively I feel something is not right.
I did message to ask him why was he taking pics of my baby and posting it on his page? But no response, and I have since blocked him. I would hate to malign someone who is actually just innocently posting my baby's pic simply because it's cute. But still, she should know that it is not right and kinda creepy to do so.
Have alerted Facebook. Not made a police report (I think it's a bit of an over reaction to do so?). Plus he is a foreigner working in Singapore ( I gathered this from his profile info), I don't want to cause him to lose his job if all this is just some misunderstanding. I've blocked out his name here and deleted my post on FB (where I asked my FB friends to flag the picture).
I cannot view his profile any more, because I've blocked him. But my friends have gone in to check and the picture of my baby has been deleted. Either FB deleted because all my friends helped me flag it, or he just took it down himself.
So that's the story of a little scare I got seeing her pic on a stranger's FB page. I guess it would not have been as shocking if I understood the language in his caption and could ascertain that it was indeed harmless.
What's your take on all this?
