Why are your kids on Facebook to begin with? You're kind of a horrible parent if you let our kid have a FB profile.

/signed, the rest of the sensible world


This is one of the rare times America is giving parents the tools to handle the situation themselves rather than calling on the government to do the job for them. I'd much rather have parents knowing if their children are playing with guns, have bought one or took the gun from it's place in the house.

How about spending that software money taking your kid out and talking to them??

And fark you. USA is the greatest, even with its flaws. I'm sure your nation is f'n perfect, No Time.

If you find out your kids are posting photos of themselves holding guns on their facebook, via a computer program, you have already failed.

Eh?
The British have been doing this for some time, arresting kids caught holding knives and such in their FB photos.
Its creepy that a dot com is ratting on people for profit, but you've got to be pretty stupid to have yourself pictured with an illegal weapon.

What kind of parent are you anyway? Your kid should use his gun at the range, or when hunting, not mess around with it in the house.
On the other hand, there's nothing wrong with this if the photo was taken at the range, or when hunting, particularly if there is a 10 point buck in he photo, or a target with a nice tight group.

That's right. If you want your kids to get any kind of action, you need to get them on Craigslist.

I'd kind of agree with this if it wasn't for the fact that it's most of the rest of the world who is on FB. America accounts for maybe 15% of FB users.

So what? I post pictures of my kids holding guns every time we go shooting or hunting. And I am entertained when the principal calls me into his office to say other kids saw these pictures on Facebook.
 
2013-02-20 11:00:02 PM  
If you need a pixel scanning algorithm on a global post it note board to let you know if your kid has access to a gun, you are most likely a f*cking failure as a parent.

If the kid is holding a firearm without you as a parent already knowing about it, you've already failed pretty spectacularly.

0/10

I'm interested whether you need to be on your child's friend list to be able to do this.  On one hand, it seems stupid to have this if you can just check their page daily.  On the other hand, if you don't have to be on their list, this service seems to be walking the line in an icky Big Brother way.

Why not just tell your kids that if they want an account, they have to give you the password?

They're pointing their guns right at each other's heads. Talk about a lack of muzzle awareness. That's pretty irresponsible of the parents.

except it's kinda moronic to think this won't be noticed by kids, who only have to... not post pictures. Honestly, i theorize on the future of field (with actual code behind it, not just philosophy) and i gotta say.. this absolutely frames  Facebook as the parent in this equation, as the culpable party when a parent needs someone to blame for their crotchfruit being so scarred by the surveillance society that they actually become LESS likely to discuss these things, not more.

repsonsbilitly cannot be shirked, legislated, or technically whisked away. garbage in garbage out.

This is good. Parents need to discipline their children for being an idiot by posting their illicit photos on their burner account that's friends with you, rather than their real account that they have with all their friends.

Im guessing that parents in the US see the kids as small money hungry parasites that prevent them from living a full life.

Any software, or other tech thats able to monitor them and share responsibility with some other persons will be welcomed as
it likely to hard to speak to the small parasite,

Next we see Oh my kids did that ?  why did I not get a SMS from the system , I will take legal action..
 
2013-02-20 11:57:41 PM  
I cant wait for Facebook to allow the parents to receive an alarm when their child is recognized in a picture with another child that doesn't meet the parent's socio-economic threshold.. let's look to the future, shall we?

The software won't flag the age-old dad and son hunting photos, but will look for anything else.

Image processing algorithms cannot do that. There's no software that could detect guns on photos with reasonable accuracy (except for photos taken in controlled conditions, but it's not the case here), not to mention "dad and son hunting photos".

So the only way this could work is that you give them the login info of your kid's FB account, then a software will automatically download every new photo, which will be judged by a human operator. If the operator sees a gun and is not fapping at the moment then he will send you an alert.
