There are plenty embarrassing photos of us on Facebook that we wish were never uploaded, but we never thought it would be possible to sue over them.

However, that's what one Austrian 18 year old is hoping to do when she takers her parents to court for posting embarrassing photos of her to their 700 friends on Facebook.

Her lawyer alleged that the parents shared over 500 images, despite the woman asking for them to be deleted, from all different stages of her childhood. They are arguing that this violated her right to privacy, and hope to prove that in court this November.

The woman gave a statement to Austrian paper The Local, saying "Every stage was photographed and then made public. I'm tired of not being taken seriously by my parents."

This could be a valuable lesson for any of your friends who overshare pictures of their children on Facebook.
