How to be Safe:
If your social media site is a personal one, then be sure to have all settings on private. Also, make sure not to share too much information. Telling the whole world the family is going on vacation, lets anyone know that your home is vacant. TMI is never a good thing and on social media it could put you at a greater risk to predators. If your social media is a business account, then set it so that you must approve posts and followers. This allows you to make sure that your account remains clean and inappropriate posts and followers are kept at bay.
Be cautious about putting your entire work history on site, such as Linked In. Putting your entire resume out their grants thieves an opportunity to find out pertinent questions on loan applications or answers to your security questions.
