Posts Can Say Alot About if You’re Vacationing

Many north Iowans are taking their last vacations of summer and while they may be excited to share photos of their far-away experiences on social media platforms, it may -not- be wise to do so when they’re still on the trip. Hamilton County Sheriff Doug Timmons recommends you resist the urge to post pix of those beautiful beaches or misty mountains.

If one of your Facebook friends comments on or “likes” your vacation photos, it’s possible your settings will also allow that person’s friends to see your photos — and suddenly, hundreds or thousands or people may see that you’re not home.

The sheriff also suggests contacting your local law enforcement agency to see if they offer a vacation watch service, which is often free.
