New Delhi: You may not have realised that oversharing on Facebook can become a personal safety risk.
Anyone who would like to stalk you or gather personal information for malicious purpose can easily access all information about you from Facebook Timeline.
You would be surprised to know that stalkers just need to click on the year and month that they're interested in and Facebook Timeline puts all the information on display. You may have put your privacy settings set to friends only. However, some Facebook apps that share your location may have more relaxed privacy settings than you are comfortable with and may be giving away your location without you realizing it.
Check your privacy settings on Facebook and also check to see what information your Facebook apps are sharing with your friends and the rest of the world. Limit them as much as possible to protect your privacy and personal safety. Never ever post information like you are home alone or your evidence address or phone number etc..
