Day by day people put themselves and their family members at unnecessary risks just by carelessly posting almost 70% of their life privacy, all in the name of showing off, having fun, luxurious life attitudes..etc

Not only that it’s wrong, Some of your statuses get to fight you later in life, fake accounts are also in abundance, which is why it is vital to keep the information you share to a minimum.

Not here to stop your from your steady and careless posting habits but please refrain from sharing the following:

1. Holiday plans

A lot of peeps are guilty of this ,some even go to the extent of even telling you who and who in the family are going and who is staying,  Informing the public that you are off to Ibadan for new yam festival and would be there for two weeks might also end in dire consequences. as you could be alerting robbers and bad people of the situation at hand. you could post whatever you wanna post on social media especially Facebook, but when it comes to the holiday/vacation/travelling aspect, Just refrain from sharing.

2. Winning tickets

Where are my betting and gambling peeps, them who can’t do without going to Nairabet,those streets urchins who can’t sleep unless their legs greets the floor of the betting houses.. you see guys on facebook with status like “Guess What I just grabbed 750k from bet9ja, they must surely pay, on my way to the bank with them” .Well my question to you guys is: “How would you feel after winning your game and then get kidnapped,or on getting home your debtors are already sitting and waiting at home, it’s not going to end well.

Well, my question to you guys is: “How would you feel after winning your game and then get kidnapped,or on getting home your debtors are already sitting and waiting at home , it’s not going to end well.

You can as well prevent this by not posting your winning tickets on social media better to keep this to thyself.

3. Home address/current location

Most people give out their home address location more than you think , it’s not as dangerous as posting about your holiday plans but can be used against you. let’s say “you get someone angry on Facebook, and maybe forget about it but the person doesn’t , He seeks for retaliation and he seems not to be getting any, and then you post your home address on your status innocently, see you in the hospital if lucky.

googletag.cmd.push(function () {
googletag.display(“div-gpt-ad-1466009690089-0”)
});

Current location is as dangerous as getting a matchstick to the petrol station we all know what will happen when it’s lit, never disclose where you are at the moment. There are a lot of Risks associated with it which you know and don’t need me to tell you about.

4. Bank details

Posting details about your bank account  on social networks have no much risks associated with it, But I would advise that you don’t post your bank details publicly on social media. There is no need for it.  Anyone who wishes to send money to you should message you privately, hackers are everywhere and just need a little detail from you and your money is a thing of the past.

5. Your relationship, relationship issues

Almost everyone is a student of the above course, social media has a hand in 48% of ruined relationship. Relationships that have been taken to the social networks don’t last.

Social media is not a place for solving relationship issues Infact it does the opposite, and those who bring their relationship to social networks the networks looking at you like, “Welcome chioma, so how do you want us to help you ruin your relationship” ??

6. Luxurious living

People who show off their wads of cash, gold plated items, mansions, cars, expensive clothes etc. on social media should reduce this character to its minimum or  refrain totally from doing such. Especially celebrities, we all have heard cases of people being held at gunpoint, robbed at home, etc. doing this does not tell people that you are wealthy it’s just going to give robbers a reason to rob you.

7. Nude, explicit content of you

I don’t think any sane person as of this modern era will go on social media to post their nudes (naked pictures), especially someone who wants to build a personality and be respected later in the future.

Even if you think your privacy is strong remember Facebook could be hacked and all those pictures could be leaked to people you don’t want it to be showed too – Your parents and colleagues as examples. I read a short joke on twitter that said: ” All these girls posting their nudes online, I hope you know  explaining to your parents that your bride price is no more than a bottle of soft drink won’t be hard.”
