If your Facebook profile is set to public, you may want to consider changing your privacy settings. Daily Telegraph's Clementine Quero reports a 17-year-old was helping her 72-year-old grandma count her savings when she decided to snap a photo of some wads of cash and post it to Facebook. It wasn't long after that two men armed with a wooden club and knives broke into the teen's mother's house, demanding to know about the money. The guys made off with some personal items, but thankfully no one was hurt.

People need to have common sense. On Facebook, you are posting to the world. Even if you post a photo to a private group of friends--the data is there to be shared to the world. One does not have control of what how another Facebook "friend" shares the data shared with them.
