How much of your life do you share through social media like Facebook, Twitter, My Space, your blog? I am one of those that would post things like:
"Going to Wal-Mart"
"Eating at Chili's"
"Can't wait until we move"
"It's almost time for hubby to get off work"
But then, my husband said, "Honey, I don't think its a good idea for you to share so much of our personal information on these sites. You never know who is out there lurking and reading what you write."
I got to thinking about what he was saying and he is SO right. I watched a segment of a news program where a lady was sharing on Facebook about when she was going and when she was coming home. One of her followers was reading it and then all of a sudden she was attacked and her house broken into. They had gotten down to the "T" where she was at all times because she was posting things that should have never been posted.
I am truly glad for my husband's leading in this area. More than that, I am glad that I have heeded his advice. I don't want anyone knowing all my business!
What about you? How much do you share and how much is too much?
