2 – Be wary of people online
Having a list of friends or contacts on your social networking platform is the whole point, right? But what about the people you don’t know in real life? You need to be absolutely sure that every new friend or contact you add into your personal online circle is who they say they are because once the person is added, they can see your pictures and videos, read your posts, and access personal information about you. If you purchase from or sell to someone contacted through a classifieds site or social networking application, arrange to meet for the transaction in a public area. Bring a family member or friend with you for added safety and to make sure the interaction takes place as expected.
