Do you post your kid’s acceptances on social media?

Curious about this. In my town many parents do, but I’ve heard in other areas parents are discouraged from doing so out of sensitivity to those who were deferred or rejected from those schools. Thoughts?

    At my high school students or parents can fill out a form saying where they’ve been accepted so far, and they’ll get a shoutout in the weekly email newsletter.

    I don't but their sibling did. Appears to be very common thing here for sibling or best friend to post for them.
