Facebook updates or twitter could be a gold mine for burglars, and web sites such as pleaserobme.com and www.robmenow.com focus on the fact that social media updates could be a to-do list for burglars and the same goes for geotagging.
As one victim, Israel Hyman, told USA Today:
"Most people wouldn't leave a recording on a home answering machine telling callers they're on vacation for a week, and most people wouldn't let mail or newspapers pile up while they were away. But users of social media think nothing of posting real-time vacation photos on Facebook showing themselves on beaches hundreds of miles from home, or sending out automatic e-mail messages that say, 'I'm out of the country for a week."o
