Don’t Photograph Your Ticket and Share It on Social Media
I see a lot of my friends making the mistake of taking pics of their tickets and then posting them on Twitter and other social networks (see the photo above, my own from years ago, as an example). The reason it’s a mistake is actually two-fold: First, it shows that you aren’t going to be home (we covered this once before), and second, I know a person who did this and some evil follower of theirs used the person’s name and ticket number to cancel their return ticket! The second case is unlikely, of course, but why not avoid all risk by keeping your details off the internet?

Very good advice….a young person I know had his house broken into while away because he shared his travel arrangements on Facebook. So it is dangerous and can lead to unhappy results….the ticket pic on social media ….why would you have to do that? Nope just keep info to yourself.
