Facebook quietly launched a new tool this week that is sparking controversy around the globe. Now in addition to posting favorite bands and vacation photos, Facebook users are also able to announce to their followers if they are expecting a baby. While this seems like a natural progression to the “I’m Engaged” announcement, the “I’m Expecting” function is fueling a lot of discussions. One of the most interesting conversations that arose with the new Facebook option is the concept of giving children an overwhelming online presence before birth. The “Expected: Child” section on the future parent’s website allows for a photo, presumably for a sonogram picture, and also a name, meaning the unborn child is primed to have their own mini-Facebook page while still in the womb.
