Geotagging..what's that????

The more I talk with parents the more I realise that there is a serious issue with education amongst adults when it comes to internet safety.  I know of so many friends that have open Facebooks, Instragrams profiles and sharing everything that goes on in their lives.  What they seem to forget is that the internet is a footprint and every photo you put up a Geotag is created with your location.  I know an 11 year old and I can trace where their school, friend’s house and home are just by looking at the photos that have been put up.
Geotagging can help users find a wide variety of location-specific information from your Device. For instance, someone can find images taken near a given location by entering latitude and longitude coordinates into a suitable image search engine. Geotagging-enabled information services can also potentially be used to find location-based news, websites, or other resources.  Geotagging can tell users the location of the content of a given picture or other media or the point of view, and conversely on some media platforms show media relevant to a given location.
You need to go into your device and stop location sharing on your photos.
It is all about your privacy settings and don’t’ share personal information.
