Don’t Tell the Whole World on Social Media – ‘It’s Holiday time’!

Your social posts could put you at risk of a break in

With airlines fully booked for the next few months, holidays are still very much on the minds of most! When you’re on holiday this summer, think twice about posting pictures on social media sites while you’re away: you might be accidentally advertising that your home is empty and increasing the risk of a burglary.

Be careful what you post and when

Posting holiday snaps and sharing your location on social media like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter while you’re travelling could invalidate your home insurance as it shows that your home is likely to be unoccupied. If criminals find out your address, they could try breaking in. Sharing details and pictures of expensive new purchases on social media can not only be seen by your friends and followers but can be shared and retweeted so strangers see them.

Review the privacy settings on your social media accounts and make sure only trusted people can see your posts while you’re away.

Consider not posting holiday pictures until you get back. Vigilance is the watchword: a picture online is not the same as a framed, family snap on the mantelpiece at home, only to be seen by people you know well.

And while there are some great benefits to creating a successful social media strategy, not having one can really hurt your business.

If you are dyslexic, I feel your pain.

Not many people know that I am horribly dyslexic. Seriously, it’s been a life long struggle. Not one that has ever resolved with a ‘happy ever after’ ending! When I was in the first year of school (a year earlier than other kids mind you), I discovered that I was in fact also completely ambidextrous. ‘Ooooh, that sounds fun’ – not!

“How to get away with murder?”, “Who let the dogs out?”, and “Do cats fart?” were among other big questions…

So every now and then, we just feel like reading some mindless nonesense that is not going to add value to our lives.  Something that doesn’t stir an emotion that will take an emotional toll.  We just want to sit. Not think. Sort of like watching ‘The Middle‘ on TV. It’s funny, we can all relate, you don’t have to think (other than reaching for your cup of tea – if you are in England), you just laugh.
