Be Wary of Your Status and Public Profile Updates on Social Networks and Dating Sites

As we become more technologically savvy, the Internet is becoming increasingly a necessary research tool of online activities of others. Think about how  many people could track your secret dating activities simply by doing a Google search.

You might also find yourself in strange and awkward situations when posting photos, real-world activity updates (think FourSquare) and other information that can link you to an activity you don't feel confident other people knowing about you, say in your work environment.

Many people I know try to use different profiles and even different simcards on their mobile phones as a security precaution, but still you may not fully realize the extent of your actions until you are confronted in a bad situation.
