Social media can tell burglars what you own, where you live, and when you’ll be away. Check out the infographic for more information on how burglars use social media.
It is estimated that 85% of burglars use Four Square to get an idea of when people aren’t home. They can learn when you are at work, when you get home, and if there are other places you frequently visit and post about. Typically, a burglar will be in and out within ten minutes.
Not only can a burglar use this to determin where you live but it also helps them determine if you have anything worth stealing. There is no point in a burglar peeking in your window when they can look at photos from your birthday and see exactly what expensive items you own.
