Social Media is giving your personal information away, to anyone with a good amount of google knowledge on their hands.
As a professional in the Security industry, I'd walk away from your social media, and use a more traditional method of keeping up with friends or like minded people. (this forum is handy for that).
Are you really willing to trade even an ounce of peace of mind for whatever advantage you might see in a social media platform? - I'm not.
KC, no offense but what do you think this is????? Anyone can join this site and sit here and lurk and make up things about themselves and their rigs. If the criminal has the intent, he will know whether you are home or not. I have a huge storage shed in back of my two acres where my unit sits. That's like an advertisement as to my being home or not. I do have four video cameras running though, just in case. It is unbelievable all the things the criminal mind can come up with. If they would put half that effort into a law abiding job, think how much better the world would be. You are right though, plenty of criminals use whatever social media is available to learn all they can about you.
