Five things you should never post on social media

Published

on

Many warnings have been sounded about dos and don’ts on social media.

An alleged revelation by billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onuamadike aka Evans, who was recently arrested adds more reason to why extra care should be taken regarding what is posted on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.

Several other kidnappings have been reported across Nigeria and experts believed the social media is one of the ways kidnappers scout potential victims

Here are five things you should think twice before doing online.

1. Posting exact location, address, email and phone number.

Would you tell your contact address to every total stranger you meet on the road? Your answer is as good as almost everyone else’s. So think of leaving your contact details on social media this way. Use the privacy settings on the social media platforms to control this feature.

2. When posting photos of your vacation


When you are going on vacation, the prospect of posting photos and making it public is always exciting, but there are dangers to that.

By posting every move, you may be unknowingly giving out information to criminals about when you are not going to be at home. It may also alert con artists of your presence at the vacation destination.

3. Posting photos of newly acquired assets

Like going on a vacation, it may seem exciting to post the photos of your newly acquired stuff. But you could be attracting some unscrupulous elements to yourself. Thieves have been known to get their information from such sources.

4. Posting details about your kids


Kids are cute. It is very tempting to want to tell everyone about your kids’ new milestone. But you may be unknowingly giving kidnappers information about your kids. It is very dangerous to give out your child’s school and other details online.

5. Don’t express hate in any form

It has become ‘intellectually fashionable’ nowadays to share fantastic political views on social media. Some take it too far. They post hate messages and messages full of racial discrimination. While your circle of friends may understand what you are all about and pardon your faults, some outside of your circle who may see the post may not. It is especially dangerous now that bloggers screenshot your post and share widely.

I don’t agree with that. I believe that if the president does not do, given the opportunities he has now, then, he will be putting Nigeria on fire.”
