In previous articles we’ve looked at the dangers of sharing too much online, and how 4 out of 5 burglars admitted to using Twitter and Facebook to select their victims.

This new infographic from Credit Sesame takes the matter of personal safety a step further, and asks: does social media compromise the security of your home?

Key takeaways:

  • 78% of burglars use Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare to target potential properties
  • 15% of Americans use social media to report that they have left their home
  • 35% of Americans aged 18-34 check in or tweet about their location
