These Are The 10 Things That You Should Never Share On Social Media.

10 Things You Should Never Share On Social Media.

Be careful what you share on social media because you never know when something could come back and ruin your life. The Internet can be a dangerous place. The truth is, if somebody wants to find out who you are and where you live, even the tiniest bit of information can lead back to you. And when that happens, the results are rarely good. In the past few years, social media has become an enormous presence in everyone’s lives. Sure, the most popular sites like Facebook and Twitter have been around for quite some time, but it’s never really been this overwhelming.

We’re all obsessed with scrolling throughout social media feeds and getting all the dirt, and it’s become a huge part of our lives. However, our constant sharing on social media can also have incredibly negative consequences. While you want to feel free to share your personality on social media, it’s worth noting that you might want to consider what you’re sharing a little more carefully.

You’d be shocked if you knew what Facebook knows about you just from your posts and comments. So before you share anything else on social media, here’s what you should never share if you value your privacy and safety.

1. Relationship problems. 

Listen, most people have had relationship drama at some point in their lives, even if they’ve since found the one – you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince, after all. And sometimes, it can be fun to share stories of a particularly funny relationship moment or a hilariously disastrous blind date. However, when it comes to what you share on social media, you should never bring all your followers into your relationship drama.

2. Pictures of your exposed body. 

We mean, it seems like this one should go without saying, but you’d be surprised at the number of people who don’t see it as a no-no. Imagine this-you're applying for a new job, one that you’re really excited about, and your potential boss stumbles across an album photo shoot you shared on social media because you were feeling yourself and proud of your results in the gym. Chances are, that’ll work against you.

3. Vices such as those that are not good for you. 

If you absolutely must share a photo of your picture-perfect drink or relaxing glass of wine to social media, hey, go ahead – chances are many of your followers will dig it. However, there’s a limit to what you should share on social media when it comes to your vices.

4. Personal opinions. 

Look, we get it – very few people have an ideal work-life balance. Perhaps you have a terrible boss who treats you badly and is always belittling you. No matter how frustrated you are, resist the temptation to air all your dirty laundry on social media, because you never know who might see it.

5. Money, bank details, and jewellery. 

Money is a tricky thing to talk about in just about any situation because people are always coming from different perspectives and experiences, but there’s one spot where you should definitely never bring it up - social media. No one wants to hear your sob story about not being able to buy that adorable dress you saw because payday isn’t for another week, because, well, most people have things they wish they could buy but they know isn’t in the budget at a certain time.

6. Posting something that will humiliate your friends.

Different things are funny to different people, and there’s no doubt that everyone has a different level of tolerance for certain things. After all, in real life, you probably wouldn’t share the same joke with your BFF that you would with your super-religious grandmother, would you? 

7. Posting noncopyrighted works and concepts. 

Most people have their phones with them nearly constantly, and we all see the way, way too many funny videos on social media that crack us up. So, when you see something you think your followers might get a kick out of, it’s tempting to whip out the phone and film it – just make sure you have permission.

8. Publicizing personal conversations.

Okay, everyone enjoys some juicy gossip every now and then – don’t even try to lie and pretend like you don’t. However, there’s a big difference between dishing to your BFF over brunch about what you heard last night, and airing it all on social media. Look, maybe someone was gossiping about you and you’re just itching to retaliate. Maybe you accidentally made a comment that spread some gossip when you didn’t even intend to. 

9. Sharing too much information. 

You’ve probably heard this time and time again – do not ever share your travel plans on social media as they’re occurring. Sure, if you want to share all the gorgeous pictures you took on your trip to the mountains or tropical vacation when you get home, by all means, do so. However, posting regular updates from the resort is a huge no-no, because it essentially announces to anyone who has access to your social media profile that you’re out of town and all your stuff is unattended.

10. Confidential information.

 Again, this one seems obvious, but people slip up way more than you might imagine. Perhaps you moved to your dream house and you want to share that with all your followers, so you post shots of the street sign, the house address, and more. Or, you finally get your driver’s license after years of anticipation, so you share a proud selfie of you posing with the new plastic.

Just keep certain things private – you’ll be better off, trust us on that.
