The last few years have brought about remarkable technologies in the way we communicate with one another. There are the old standbys – voice mail, email, and texting – but now people are using Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube just to name a few. These are all wonderful tools to communicate with others, but how secure are they? Nothing upsets me more than hearing that a relative of mine – or anyone for that matter – has updated their Facebook page with information like “we’re going to the beach this weekend” or “I just got home and the husband and kids are out to a movie.” If this isn’t an invitation for a crime I don’t know what is.
Is it that important to let everyone know your business all of the time? When I question these folks, they often tell me that I am just not “with the Now Generation” and I think the worst in everyone. The fact is that these social media forms of communicating are simply not as secure as a phone or face-to-face conversation. There is no way to know who is monitoring you. If you really need to let someone know your whereabouts, try something different – pick up the phone and talk to them. It’s simple, it’s secure, and it’s worked for many years.
