For your safety and that of your family never share these posts on Facebook.
Originally launched on February 4, 2004, to be used primarily by college students, Facebook has now achieved much more than that. It won't be wrong if I say that it has, in fact, become the Google of social networks.
It is a fact that since it has gained so much popularity with registered users in billions, it has a great impact on our life, especially when it comes to communication. It has become a part of our life and our routine. But most of the time people don't think twice about what they post.
Much of what we post is harmless, but then there are those who love to share almost everything that goes on in their daily lives on social networks. And that's where the danger lies.
You think that as long as your privacy settings are set correctly, you will be safe within your circle of friends. The problem is, you would never know who is really looking at your information.
You must understand that there are some types of posts that may end up compromising your privacy and security, so it is very important to exercise caution as to what you choose to publish.
To help you with this I've listed below 10 things that you must never post on your Facebook profile.
Photos of event tickets such as concerts, games, theater, etc. should not be posted on social networks. You may notice that these tickets usually have a barcode on them which is read at the venue for your entrance. So sharing these openly on Facebook has a risk of it being replicated by third parties. As a result, you may run the risk of not being able to enter the event if the impostor's ticket is scanned first by the system.
Boarding pass also has a barcode and not only that, but this piece of paper also presents information that goes beyond your flight data, which can give access to your details on the airline's website.
Using the information on these tickets any bad person can find your phone number and future flights that you may have booked. It also allows someone access to enter and change your seats, as well as cancel any future flights of yours.
When people travel or even go somewhere they find interesting, the very first thing they like to do is to share their location or even post photos of the same. This habit may prove to be dangerous as criminals may use this information for their benefit.
Fraudulent people these days are increasingly specialized in looking for such profiles, and the information about their houses that are about to remain empty during the owner's vacation, so that they can rob them or can commit any other suspicious activity.
We all like to be remembered on our birthday, aren't we? However, the birth date that we share on social networks is considered a great piece of information for the so-called "identity thieves" as this is one of the key information regarding you.
Ridiculously Bold Photos
No matter how much you love your body, the world does not need to see it. Well, unless you are interested in entering the adult market.
So if you wish to avoid such embarrassments then make your photos bolder to yourself.
Your Office Opinions
If you are like most of the population, you hate your job. But then don't share your feelings on your social media. Let alone getting any sort of help or relief, if someone from your office sees your emotions, you may have serious problems. And, worse than hating a job, is not having a job to hate.
Unless your life's dream is to increase the chances of you getting robbed, posting money or bank account photos could never be a smart decision. Some people are very smart and can find ways to find your data online, and use it against you.
Crazy Information Sharing
There are things that nobody would be interested to know about you. So sharing details about when you go to the bathroom, how much you ate last night, whether you are feeling sick, or something like these, are not only boring but could at times prove to be embarrassing information.
Photos of Children in School Uniform
The photo of a child is always good and cute, no-doubt parents would want to share this special moment with friends. However, you should be aware of the fact that sharing your child's photo in his/her school uniform dress on social platforms is quite critical. After all, the uniform indicates where your child studies and may facilitate the action of potential criminals.
It's not bad to share some positive outcomes or moments of our life. However, reserve the intimate ones only for close friends, and preferably far away from social networks.
