Social Networking sites are like an addiction. Earlier we had just a single option Facebook, where we were wasting hours of our lives sharing things with people we never knew and never met.
However, as time progressed, we were presented with even more options to waste an even greater part of our valuable time and on more sites.
Social networking was meant for connecting with the people whom you know in reality in a much better way.
However, today, social networking sites are used to connect with strangers with whom you have zero resemblance.
Keeping this fact in mind, there should be restrictions on many things we share in social media. Not everything is meant to be shared with everyone.
Your Home Address and Phone Numbers
Just avoid sharing your home address and personal phone number, unless your social profile is a very narrow one with few trustworthy people.
If your profile is exactly the opposite and contains unknown people, refrain from putting this at any cost.
However, if a site requires this, you can always change the setting from Public/Friends to Only Me for security.
Your Financial Status
Whether you are a millionaire or middle class, just don’t share your financial status with your online friends. You know what?
No one is interested in your Platinum Credit Card, The Amount of Money in your bank or your new car. Of course, they do matter, but only for people trying to run after your money.
Never share such content even when you are out of your mind. The internet is huge, and things get heated up pretty quickly. Your content might get posted on the wrong site even before you realize your mistake.
The content shared on the internet never gets deleted. You might remove it from your social profile. However, you don’t know how many sites would have already captured and preserved it.
Moreover, you might get caught into lawsuits if it contained anything that’s not permitted by the local law. So, be aware and be safe.
Screenshots of Personal Conversations
The word itself says private, so why would you like to share it on social media? If you do so, you might get good numbers of appreciations or get trolled.
However, no one will value you, or would rather not share anything personal with you as they will have the feeling that you might share that conversation too.
