Thirty things to NOT share on Social Media
1. Personal conversations – don’t post chunks of private emails, Instant Messages or texts without permission.
2. Open invites to all friends meant only for a few – “who wants to go for a drive?”
3. Social plans – it will make uninvited friends feel left out.
4. Date analysis – if your ex is still a friend or follower, don’t talk about the date you just had or will be having.
5. Employer secrets – don’t want to get fired? Keep planned products, expansions or layoffs private until your boss releases information publicly.
6. Photos of your kids publicly – if you don’t restrict access to your profile, family photos are there for everyone to see. Keep your kids safe from dodgy strangers.
7. Your home address and phone number – File this one under security risk.
8. Personal finance information – don’t blab about how much money you make, your bank account size or how much that new car cost. You just look like a douchebag.
9. Your password secret hint
10. Remember, the Facebook Comments plugin on other sites posts
11. Embarrassing photos of yourself or friends – yes, it may seem funny at the time but not when a potential employer rejects your job application because of what they’ve seen.
12. Pictures of your credit card – people actually do this. Proud of your platinum AMEX card?
13. Pictures of any bodily function
14. You’re about to go on vacation – just invite thieves over to steal your stuff while you’re gone.
15. A naked selfie – no explanation required.
16. Facebook game updates
17. Pictures of your drunk work Christmas party.
18. That you are having an affair or thinking about it.
19. Complaints about your boss or colleagues.

327 Gory pictures – don’t post pictures with blood or any living thing coming to harm.
