Red face You might just be giving out a bit of personal info without even knowing it... Be careful...

I've noticed that some people post or have links to their Flickr, Photobucket, Polyvore, and other photo-sharing website accounts in their siggys- which isn't the problem...

The thing is, you have to be careful what is on those pictures. Even the littlest details like Street Names, a sign that says "Welcome to.... (town)", the Address and/or phone # on a pet's collar, a drawing that you made with your name signed in the corner, a license plate #, a picture of your webkinz with a photograph of your family in the background, a one-of-a-kind store that you live by, a birthday cake that says "Happy (age) Birthday!" ...

I could go on and on with tiny details that could help an online predator find out more about you, and they can easily piece those little things together... so please, we know that posting pictures of ourselves/ family/ friends is a big No-No, but remember those tiny little things that are in the background too...

Stay Safe!

I agree. (: You never know what you could be giving away. You should be cautious with everything you post, because you never really know. You should never get out even the slightest bit of personal info. Don't even tell people when a performance is at your school or something as small as that, it just makes it easier for people to try to track you down.

Yes, and also things like when your basketball team is playing... that stuff can be put together VERY easily...
