Social networking is fun, it’s nice to go on Facebook or Twitter and let all your friends know you are ‘in Mexico’ or ‘Up the Eiffel Tower’, but you are also letting everyone know your house may be empty and may be for a while, something we at Redlocks Locksmiths Cambridge advise against.

Do you really trust everyone in your friends list? Do you actually know all the people in your friends list or those following you on Twitter? Think about it! It may be wiser to play safe and if you feel the urge to announce it, do it once home.
