My favorite time to post on social is when I am traveling, but it’s probably the worst.
If you post publicly, you are telling potential thieves that you are away. In the UK, posting photos of your vacation can invalidate your home owner’s insurance just as if you left a window open.
There are a few simple precautions you can make:
Post when you get home versus while you are gone
Share only privately with your friends vs. on public sites
Turn off geo-tagging on your photos
Don’t tag others on vacation with you until you get home
Let’s be smart (and safe) this holiday season.
