    They say a picture is worth a thousand words and some of them might be your address. :eek

    Why would you bother tweeting this sort of info? Who really cares?
    Do they think "I am so desperate for attention, or recognition, or so lonely that I am reduced to tweeting this sort of crap".

    From the link previously quoted.
    Me, I'm confused !

    Another reason those too cheap to pay 25 cents for fuzzy pictures and sure will not pay $800 for phones with bad reception will someday rule the world.


    Bazza, Twitter is full of postings that have made it hard to sort through.

    "I am picking my nose now." As if the whole world wanted to know THAT about YOU!

    When ceceLocoPretty posted her photo online, she unknowingly gave away her location because her smartphone by default tags photos with GPS coordinates. They extracted the location from the picture's metadata. They looked up the GPS coordinates stored in the photo's EXIF tag and got an address. Stalkers, crazy ex-spouses, vengeful mobsters and other creepy types can do this also.
