Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Kik, etc.

Hi everyone -

Please do not post your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Kik, and other social network names. While we work hard to keep MedHelp safe, we are still a public site on the internet, and everyone has a lot of personal info (including real names, locations, ultrasound/baby pics, etc.,) on social networks. If you'd like to share this info, please use the private message system.

Some of you may not be aware that this community is accessible via a public website as well, so anyone with internet access can see it, not just people with the app. Please keep your private info safe.

Thanks,

Emily

Some women have been receiving unwanted messages, requests, and in one girls case a stalker because they posted information on this site, added people to other social media sites thinking they were fellow pregnant women, and it turned out they were men. It's just an all around bad idea to give your information out to someone you don't know. A lot can go very wrong.

We don't allow personal information to be shared in public areas on our site, per our Terms of Use (http://www.medhelp.org/termsofuse.htm). We do this for your safety. As others have said, anyone can see your info if they have access to the internet, and some women are reporting that men are contacting them via KIK and saying they found their names here.

It's always a good idea to keep your personal info private on public websites. We work hard to keep MedHelp safe, but we are still a public site on the internet.
