Social networking can lead to a lot of trouble. 😉 Funny and scary at the same time. Imagine something going wrong with just one status update. You never know what your update will lead to.
Updating status with a line saying “I am out for a vacation” or “I wont be home till next week” can lead you getting robbed . These days burglars search the social networking site to see who is out-of-town and prone to robbery. Police busted a bunch of burglars and they said they used Facebook as a tool to gather intelligence on who is home and who is not home. 🙂 One should always be extra careful while using such social networking sites.
To prevent such things :
- Avoid such updates all together.
- If at all you are updating, change the privacy settings of your account. Make your post visible to only a certain number of people.
Facebook provides lots of privacy settings for your account, so keep searching new ways to be safe and enjoy problem free Facebook 🙂 How many privacy settings do you know about? What all should be kept in mind? Share your interesting views with me through the comments. 🙂
