Don’t Publicize Your Vacations
Many of us love using social media (here’s my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) to share information and photos about our travels, but you might want to be wary of doing so, especially if you have social media followers who aren’t friends or family. Posting on your social media account might be an open invitation to would-be thieves, looking for unoccupied homes to target.
So, don’t let yours be one of them. Either minimize posting about vacation time away from home or make sure that your social media accounts have strong privacy settings, ensuring that only people you trust can see sensitive information. Or alternatively, just have nothing to steal (like me), a great alarm system or a killer guard dog.
FYI: The vacation pictured was taken in Fiji, where one of our contributors got certified in SCUBA.
