WARNING FYI !!: Smartphone Owners - PLEASE view this video.

This is purely a WARNING FYI thread for Smartphones owners who
post online images.



PROBLEM:
Essentially, if you takes pictures with your smartphone and post them
online without properly setting your GPS options, you risk exposing
intimate details and information about yourself, family members, or friends.

SOLUTION:
Provided by the following video...


Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery. - Malcolm X
A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything. - Malcolm X
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. - Confucius
The greatest scholars are not usually the wisest people. - Geoffrey Chaucer

You're welcome.
Technology is entertaining and allows us to communicate and share in a variety of ways.
But it can also be a double-edged sword if we're not careful.
And I felt that since quite a few people here use social network services, that I should warn of some of the dangers of posting images online.

Hasn't this always been the case though? I mean nothing is really safe anymore as well.
