Photo etiquette

I think people should credit the original photographers of a photo on Facebook. I’m just saying. Saving and re-sharing without saying “thanks to Elizabeth for this” is rude. And then I gave my brother and his new wife (!) all the pictures I took on a flash drive (about 1300 pictures total) and I wish that when she shares them on FB or Instagram she would say “thanks to Elizabeth for taking this shot”. I mean as the bride I suppose it’s a given SHE wasn’t taking pictures herself and I’m not a practicing professional photographer. So maybe it doesn’t matter that my silly iPhone pictures of a family event are being shared without credit. But it was her mother saving and sharing on her own wall that kinda bugged me. And I know it was my picture because I know 100% I was the only person who captured that shot.
