All of my FB friends are people I actually know. We don’t broadcast our camping activities, just the occasional check-in. Likewise, we don’t tell our neighbors when we’re camping, they just know to watch our house when they see the trailer gone. I also don’t participate in the various “Where are you camping this weekend?” threads for the same reason.

No, Facebook is not to blame. 'She' is to blame.
We never post when we are out of town. Quick way for people to find out that your house is waiting for visitors.

We always add Facebook posts of our travels. Usually gone for 3+ weeks. Never had a problem. But my Facebook friends are people I know, not random requests. Also our address is not in our information only our city. We live in a small town with trustworthy neighbors and friends who look after our house. I really don't give it much thought.

My background? Retired LEO of 29 years. So I am far from trusting.....

Same, we normally don't post until we return or the day before. (we missed out on a close friend since childhood who happened to be in the same town for 3 days with us and we didn't know each other was traveling and didn't get a chance to hook up).

But as others have said, when the big truck and RV are missing off the property, it's kind of obvious we're gone.....
HENCE multiple security cameras on the home... (dang neighbor's cat keeps setting it off).

I am on Facebook and NEVER post anything about a camping trip until we get back. I have a neighbor who keeps an eye on the house while we are gone. Unfortunately, the trailer missing from the yard is a dead givaway but have not had a problem.

Common sense or the less politically correct response. “ DUH “

I have a FB account, only because the kids can post pictures of the twins. I have only befriended (2) people... my daughter and son. I check it once a month whether I need to or not, or when the kids tell me to check it. DW does not have or want a FB account. I have no use for it. Two things I did when I registered with FB was to use my traveling MagicJack phone number that is linked to nothing, and my GARBAGE email account (used when I need to add my email to a website that I am joining. I only access FB with my old laptop that basically has nothing but my electronics design stuff on it with no contact info.

Or neighbors park their cars on our driveway, while we are away. My security system is a 2 tier system Alerts and then Alarms. The screen doors, gates, outdoor motion sensors are part of my alerts. When they are triggered I get a text alert stating what was activated. The 16 security cameras are part of my exterior/interior system, and can be accessed remotely. All the interior sensors, motion, window sensors, glass break sensors trigger the alarm company and I also get a text when they are triggered.

IE... Wednesday, I got a front screen door open alert, logged into the security DVR and saw a guy hanging a advertisement. Saved a picture of his mug shot. Texted my neighbor, who has his truck on my drive, and asked if he would remove the advertisement next time he checks his mail. "Mission accomplished" was the text response. Later that afternoon, the lawn guys triggered the gate alarm, saw them on the cameras, nice to know that they cut the grass. Yes, there is even a mail box sensor, for when my mail is forwarded, and my neighbor will remove the mail, should a NEW mail person have the route.

No matter what we do to protect our property, there is always a chance that we will get broken in. We have taken the initial step to hopefully keep them from breaking into our house. Maybe, if they see the cameras, and security signs they will move to another easier property. There is not much more that I can or want to do.

Answer: FB privacy settings. I put a LOT on Facebook. Very rarely do I post anything at all that's public. Almost everything I post is set to Friends Only, and beyond that I don't allow anything.

We often share pictures of our travels with friends. But ONLY with friends!

Enjoy!

For what it is worth:

Limit the audience for your old posts for your Timeline This will revert all your previous posts from "Public" or "Friends of Friends" to just "Friends". But if you've tagged a Friend in one of your posts, their Friends can see that since that is the default setting when tagging someone.

And most people leave their settings to exactly the way it was when they first signed up with little of no knowledge of the issues.
