New Born Fame

BY LAURA CORNET
@ VOL 12 ON NOV 27, 2014

Laura Cornet observes how this generation of newborns is the first to be brought up by parents who grew up with facebook. This results in the fact that nearly half of the newly born babies is visible online within the first day after birth. She wouldn’t want that, but her research shows differently. A lot of people don’t consider it a problem, as their kid is part of their lives. The only negative thing mentioned, is the fact that the baby has no say in it.

As a response Laura designed four baby-products which allow the baby to publish itself online. The design are menat to make people think about the use of social media, and how this influences the life of this new generation. What is considered to be okay, and when does it go too far? And, even more important: who is in charge of that decision?
