3 Common Social Media Mistakes You Don’t Want to Make While Traveling

limo service chicago, chicago limoSocial media and travel just seem to go together: after all, isn’t it fantastic to be able to connect with everyone you know while on a lovely vacation? That being said, social media and travel aren’t always friendly. There are a few social media mistakes you should avoid.

1. Allowing Your Photos to Auto-Upload

It’s easy to snap a few fun pictures during a business trip, but what if they get uploaded? The last thing you want is your boss thinking that you’re flaking out on the job when you were really just taking a well-deserved breather. Make sure that your phone isn’t set to auto-upload your photos. This feature is available in Facebook and many other social media platforms.

2. Telling Everyone Where You’re Going in Advance

You don’t always know who is looking at your social media accounts. It could just be friends and family — it could also be someone planning something nefarious. If you post to your social media accounts that you’re on vacation or going on vacation, it becomes trivial for someone in your neighborhood to find your house and burglarize it. Post after the trip — not during.

3. Letting Your Social Media Auto-Post Your Location

Many social media accounts automatically post your location. This may not seem like a problem, but imagine if you post “#lost — in New York City, New York.” There are — believe it or not — criminals who specifically look for tourists in areas like this so that they can rob them or otherwise scam them. You don’t want to make yourself a target.

It’s always a good idea to make your social media accounts private before you travel, but don’t think that privacy protects you completely. Anything that you share on social media can still be shared by other people to the public. In general, never put anything on the Internet that you don’t want to be seen by the world — and by your employers.
