Internet Safety: What you need to know before posting pictures

I have heard before about the geotagging on pictures, but just today I was reminded about how important it is. Chances are that if you are reading my blog, you also publish your own pictures online somewhere, if not in a blog, then perhaps Facebook, Instagram, or some other photo site. With my recent injury, I have had more time to read more blogs and involve myself more in the blogging community, making me think more and more about all the pictures we post, especially of our children.

I have trusted www.Snopes.com for years for helping me distinguish rumor from crisis, and today I was reminded, via snopes.com, about how important it is for all of us to consider how our phones are set up before we take more pictures. I was glad that I had previously turned my geotagging photos off, but I am sure we don’t all know about this. Please take the time to read this Snopes article and watch the short news video attached to it. This is important.
