To keep personal, financial and life safe from malicious people, here are 14 things you should never publish on Facebook. Faced with the expansion of social media on the Internet, the preservation of personal data and the security of files is not always ensured despite the many information protection features integrated into applications. So, to protect your personal life, find out the 14 things you especially shouldn't publish on Facebook, according to Tech Times magazine.
Used by millions of people around the world, Facebook is a social media that has established itself as an essential part of our daily lives. To communicate with our friends, share photos or even events that are important to us, this media gives us many possibilities, each of them specifically designed to adapt to our needs.
However, if Facebook is an advantageous sharing and communication platform, we must not forget that it can also harm us if we do not pay attention to the information published. Tech Times magazine has compiled a list of things you are strongly advised to keep for yourself:
1. Data related to your financial and personal security:
The data concerning your identity should not appear on your Facebook profile, namely: your home address, your telephone number, the day and the year of your birth, the names of the parents etc. This information can be exploited by malicious people who could use it to their advantage.
2. Indications for your passwords:
Avoid sharing information that hints at your passwords or security issues that protect your secret codes. Like the first name of your pets, the birthplace of your parents or grandparents, the first name of your partner etc.
3. Location of your destinations:
Whether you're traveling, or somewhere far from home, this can indicate to potential thieves that you are not at home. It is therefore preferable not to quote it on your page.
4. Information about your personal situation:
If you are in a relationship, break up, or have had bad news from your doctor, do not share this data. Your privacy doesn't always have to be spread out on a social media.
5. Annoying photos of you or people around you
During your outings, birthdays or private parties, avoid posting embarrassing photos of yourself or those around you. Respect your privacy and that of others.
6. Photos of your children or your friends' children:
Beyond the privacy that you must respect when it comes to the lives of others, it is also important to favor moderation regarding the photos of your own children. Posting photos, especially if they are embarrassing, can later cause discomfort for your child.
7. Private photos:
Private or naked photos are mainly to be banned. Once published, this data is no longer entirely yours, which could cause you harm in the future.
8. Complaints about your work:
Despite the frustrating situations experienced at work, don't complain about it on your page. This information can cause trouble with your colleagues or even your employer!
9. Activities at work:
Your projects at work should not be published on social media, unless it is a strategy of your company. This would risk attracting competitors and enemies.
10. News and announcements from your friends:
Do not share personal news that relates to the life of your friends, such as pregnancy, birth, engagement or marriage. Respect their privacy.
11. Political opinions:
Delicate subjects like politics or religion should be avoided. Messages can be interpreted differently and deemed insensitive.
12. Publications, insulting messages:
To avoid frustrating those around you, family members or your circle of friends, avoid posting offensive postings that can reach and harm them.
13. Gossip and gossip:
Do not ruin your relationship with those around you. Do not attack them with criticism, gossip or gossip. Your own friends will find it hard to trust you afterwards.
14. The “Fake News”:
An intoxication can spread at a speed that may well surprise you! Always check the credibility of the information published to avoid misleading people who follow you.
