A woman must delete photographs of her grandchildren that she posted on Facebook and Pinterest without their parents' permission, a court in the Netherlands has ruled.

The case went to court after the woman refused to delete photographs of her grandchildren which she had posted on social media.

"I think the ruling will surprise a lot of people who probably don't think too much before they tweet or post photos," said Neil Brown, a technology lawyer at Decoded Legal.

That's a pretty sane ruling. People should learn to consider if others want their personal data published.
