Inviting Them In – Overusing Social Media

I’d be lying if I didn’t acknowledge my own use of Facebook as a way to both talk about my own goings on, and a way of keeping up with others. It’s not like we don’t know privacy is a thing. There are times when we’d just rather have the attention.

This is gonna sound like a soap-box post. Here’s the thing though; Don’t Care.

When we started our Facebook page we did so with the knowledge that we are a security company first. We have one thing in mind; Security. Your security, our security, your children your dog your house your cat. Your pet mouse that will be soon fed to your snake whom we also secure.

Facebook, of course, doesn’t like that. They want to know everything. The more you post, the better off they are and the more reaction you get the better you feel. So us users kind of forget, sometimes, that we are indeed responsible for our social media. Despite Facebook’s own admission of privacy violations, their new rules aren’t going to solve the issue of, well, sharing potentially damaging information willingly.

I’m not gonna tell you what and what not to post on your Facebook page. I am, however, going to set some guidelines.

  1. If at all possible, it’s always better to post pictures of your vacation when you get back. Remember that Facebook friend and “person who gives a crap about you” mean different things.
    1. If you don’t want to do that, create a “Vacation Group” of only your closest friends. It’s much safer to do that than trusting thousands of “Friends” to not take advantage of your absence.
  2. Keep your information private. Please. Phone number, address, email… this is not information anyone else needs.
  3. Careful of those 3rd party sites that post those silly games and “What you’ll look like in 30 years” apps. Those are information gathering exercises. And we have no idea who is going to end up with the information they gathered. Or why.
  4. NO ONE IS SENDING YOU A FREE XBOX ONE OR PS4 FOR BEING THE 1,000,000th visitor. In fact, there have probably been a million other millionth visitors. They also haven’t received their free console.

It’s up to you how much you want to share. There are just ways to do it that don’t open the door for people to take advantage of you.

Share away my friends. Safely.
