Uploading Photos on Social Sites


Assalam alaykum,

I would like to know if there is any ruling of his Eminence (Ayatullah Ali Sistani) on the following issues :

(1) uploading ones photo (with or without proper hijab) on social networking sites to be seen by any tom dick & harry .

(2) If ones friends/family members e.t.c upload ones photos without permission then who will be held responsible if they are misused ?


Alaykum Salaam Sister.
