7 Photos You Shouldn’t Post on Photo Sharing AppsLifestyle
With the rise of photo sharing apps, everyone is busy sharing their photos online. Vacation photos, parties, events, candid moments– these are just some of the photos people share on their social network and photo sharing apps.
Now, before you hit the upload button and share your adventures too, take a step back first. There are things you should never post on your photo sharing apps, and we’re gonna list it down here. By following this list, you will avoid any troublesome effects in the future or getting embarrassed by your family, friends, and colleagues.
Yes, you had fun on a sleazy night out, but posting the memories from that event may ruin your reputation. Imagine if you’re applying as a teacher, the admin will then check your online background and sees pictures of you chugging a bottle of vodka with someone on your lap. Would you think you’ll get the job? You’ll have lesser chances with that.
Before the event, never post the tickets. Posting will only give scammers a chance to steal your photo. They could either pretend that they’re selling your ticket or replicate the ticket since you already have shown all the info.
Showing a ticket photo also indicates your location. So if you have stalkers, letting them know your location at a specific time may bring danger.
It’s tempting to brag your money especially if you won on a lottery. But posting it on your photo sharing apps may tempt burglars around to get all that sweet, sweet money.
Real-time Vacation Photos
There’s no problem posting vacation photos, but posting them in real-time can bring in some trouble. Letting everyone know that you and the whole family are not around will just help them rummage your home. Don’t let burglars get inside info from you.
I know this is common sense– of course, no one would share their birth certificate online. But some parents do share their offspring’s certificate. We know you want a symbolic post about having a child and such– but for the love of your child, don’t post it. You don’t want some scammer to steal your child’s identity.
Candid Photos Without Permission from the Subjects
Always ask permission before uploading any photos of your friends, relatives, and acquaintances. You might find the photo lovely, but you’ll never know the effects of your unsolicited uploads.
Someone Else’s Photos
This tip is simple– don’t steal anyone’s photo or artwork. This is common sense at its finest but people seemed to not realize it and it continuing reposting content, thinking that a simple “Credits to the owner” will fix it. Also, most social media apps are not tolerating this practice. Here’s a quoted statement from Facebook’s Terms of Service:
“You will not post content or take any action on Facebook that infringes or violates someone else’s rights or otherwise violates the law. We can remove any content or information you post on Facebook if we believe that it violates this Statement or our policies. … If you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights, we will disable your account when appropriate.”Section five of Facebook’s Terms of Service
And there you go, the 7 photos you should never post on social network and photo sharing apps on Android and iOS. Consider this well and you will get a peaceful experience on these existing or new social media apps.
