John Michel's insight:

Tech-savvy burglars use publicly-obtainable information e.g. Foursquare check-ins, location-based Facebook updates, and metadata from shared images to locate potential victims. To illustrate the risk of over-sharing on social media, Distinctive Doors designed this infograph explaining how they do it, and what you can do to protect yourself. Hopefully, it’ll prompt you restrict the visibility of your updates and engage in more cautious sharing.

Unfortunately this is very true. The sad part is, most of those who commit fraud online are actually tech savvy and educated people.

Not every possible technique will necessarily stick with all self-motivated learners, of course, but the only way to find out is to test them. Try some of the following and experiment with what works in a more independent educational setting.
