1. The more information you put on yourself, the more vulnerable it could be. So choose what you want to put up. But some things are no better than to put up at all. Your address, telephone numbers and bank account or credit card numbers, for example. If someone asks for it, not give it out without thinking about it. If you are uncomfortable about sharing some information, not share it.

2. If all your friends are in some cool new SN site, that does not mean you have to join the dark too. Find out how it works, and the level of security and privacy allowed. Review the privacy policies of sites is part of what you know whom to report if abuse occurs online.

5. Save a snapshot of the web is as easy as a right click. An evil can easily change any photo editing tool. So think twice before putting your photos on a page SN.
