Okay, picture this: You are on Facebook and you publish a photo of yourself on the way to the airport, later another one when you are at the airport, then at your destination, for example in a resort near the beach; If some of your friends click on the like button of your photo, they distribute it on their wall and all the friends can see it, if every person has about 200 friends, everyone will see it, and of course, you don’t know to everyone. The truth is that they already have realized that there is no one in your house or maybe there is someone who can be easy to subjugate. Also imagine that someone asks you: When are you coming back?
