It might be fun to share your experiences, photos, and thoughts online, but you need to be very careful when it comes to the types of information you share.

Social media is an extremely powerful medium. It lets us share our thoughts to the world, and get connected with other people. However, this power can also be used by criminals for their illegal activities. Knowing what to post and what not to post can ensure that you and your family are safe when it comes to these things.

1. Your home and work address

Posting personal information such as your work or home address can potentially be used by nefarious individuals to track down your address. So it’s best to keep that information private.

2. Photos of your kids

Whenever posting photos of your children on social media, be very careful of which photos you choose to upload. Photos showing their current location, or their school can be very risky as it can be used by anyone who sees the photos to track down your kids.

3. Information about your vacation

Vacations are fun, and they’re fun to share. But make sure not to share all the details of your vacation online. This information can be used by robbers to take advantage of your absence and break into your home.
