While browsing this website, I came across this article underlining the consequences of sharing certain things on social media that could impact a person's life. According to the piece , a family home in Sidney, Australia got robbed after a 17 year old girl posted a large amount of money on the Facebook. While helping her grandmother count the money she had saved for a long a period of time, the teenager took a picture of the money and posted it on Facebook as most of us teenagers tend to do these days to "impress" our friends and those on our social network. This incident shows how much attention we should pay to the pictures we upload on social media, because not only are we risking our lives but also our families and friends.
The biggest question was how the robbers knew where the young girl lived. Did they trace the picture, even though most profiles are set to private or available only to friends or did the girl set up her family? I would to hear my fellow EdLabbers' opinion about the aforementioned situation and do you guys keep your stuff private on social networks?
