Do YOU carry a "smartphone" ??? Are YOU Smarter than your "smartphone" ???
With the proliferation of smart phones with built-in GPS locator technology, cameras in these devices are factory equipped with the specialized hardware to automatically add geolocation information to the pictures at the time they are taken.
When you post your photo(s) to a social network, someone else can download the picture and find out where you’ve been, and perhaps more dangerously, where you are at that precise moment. Don't let them!
Most folks don't realize that the action of automatic geo-tagging occurs on their smart phones, either because it is enabled by default, not exposed the user as an option, or was asked and then forgotten. As a result, individuals often share too much information about their location, right down to the exact Latitude and Longitude when snapping photos with their smartphone and posting them online.
