Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are incredibly popular, with billions of people who utilize these pages every single day. If you have a social media account, you probably use it a lot to post updates and share photos. Unfortunately, we’re living in a time now when it can actually be dangerous for you to share personal photographs on such large websites.
The best way to share photos on social media is to keep them semi-private. This means that you can change the setting of the photo in question so that only your friends and relatives can see what you’ve posted. This allows you to still share your pictures without worrying that random strangers are going to be able to see everything that you put onto your page. If you don’t currently have this setting equipped, you can easily change it by going to the settings page on whichever site you’re using. In some instances, you’ll have to change the setting of each individual picture before you’re able to mass-post your photos with the new setting.
There are a lot of benefits to posting your pictures on your social media page. For one, you’ll be able to keep your friends and relatives updated on you and your family’s lives. This is especially great for relatives who live far apart and cannot necessarily see each other often. The only reason your pictures should be made public is if you own a business and need everyone visiting your page to have access to your company’s photographs.
By keeping your pictures safe guarded, you’re less likely to deal with the problems associated with strangers seeing your personal information. If you have any questions regarding your privacy on these websites, you will want to email the company itself to find out more about the different settings and how to change them so that your pictures are less visible to the public and are kept between you and your loved ones.
