We share so many details of our daily lives online, but where should we draw the line on what we share about ourselves, our family, and our friends?
There are some tidbits of personal information that it is best to never share online, here are ten of them: While you may love getting loads of birthday wishes posted by your friends on your Facebook Timeline, having your birthdate posted on your profile may provide scammers and identity thieves with one of the key pieces of information needed to steal your identity and open up accounts in your name.
What if your friend has their phone stolen or logs into Facebook from the library and forgets to log out?
You can't rely on the "Friends only" setting because you really never know.
If you must post pictures of your children, remove any geotag information, and avoid using their real names in the picture tag or description.Many people don't realize that when they post a status update or a tweet, they may also be revealing their current location.Giving out your location information can be dangerous because it tells potential thieves that you might not be at home.The profiles were fake as well, carefully crafted to match your interests.In addition to losing your money to someone who had no intention of ever visiting you, you may also have unknowingly taken part in a money laundering scheme by cashing phony checks and sending the money overseas and by shipping stolen merchandise (the forwarded package).
