TravelHaven Tips – ‘I’m on vacation’

Most people wouldn’t leave a recording on a home answering machine telling callers they’re on vacation for a week, and most people wouldn’t let mail or newspapers pile up while they were away. But users of social media think nothing of posting real-time vacation photos on Facebook showing themselves on beaches hundreds of miles from home. Others set automatic e-mail messages that say, "I’m out of the country for a week." The Associated Press warns that there are risks to communicating too much on social networking sites, reporting that some recent burglaries seem to have resulted from such carelessness. Facebook and Twitter are so relatively new that users may not consider all the risks. There’s an inherent danger in putting yourself out there.
