Guests barred from pictures or ‘Snapchat’ at Saudi wedding

WEDDING

RIYADH: Guests at a wedding in Saudi Arabia were surprised when they came face to face with a board at the house’s door telling them not to take pictures with their mobile phones.

“No pictures by mobile phones and no Snapchat please…you are welcome at my home and I have the freedom to keep my privacy,” the board said.

According to a local newspaper the board was placed by Rabeia Al Shaabi, the bride’s mother, at their home in the Southern Jizan province.

It quoted Shaabi as saying she took such a move after reports of massive privacy violations in the Saudi society through Snapchat and other mobile and online services.
