Internet Safety - Social Media Madness

Good instincts!

Many social media sites or apps will request to access your location, but in most cases this isn’t necessary. You can still get the most out of your social media experience without sharing where you are while you’re there.  

In addition to this, some sites may automatically make your location information public. 

These sites may share your exact location with people you may or may not trust with it.

Take a look at the privacy settings on your social media account to see what your location settings are and consider updating them. (You will learn how to do this later in this tutorial.)

If you DO decide you want to share your location, consider waiting to tag the location until you leave.
