Keeping your home safe while you travel

For all the good that social media does there is just as much bad. In New Hampshire a group of people friended people on Facebook that they did not know so they could determine when they would be gone and the burglarize their homes.

Social media expert Dave Hatter says there are privacy options that won't tell anyone where you are. "Understanding like for example like if you use Facebook does it have the location feature turned on where it automatically broadcast where you are? Twitter has a similar kind of feature. So I would say if you have any doubts, if you feel like you don't really understand how this stuff works, you don't know how to control your privacy, then take a more judicious approach, be cautious, put out as little as possible," he says.

He says if you want to share memories from your vacation wait until you get home.
