  1. I think how much to share on social media is a very individual decision based on personal comfort level and boundaries. Some people share a lot about particular subjects, as in (for example) mental illness support groups on Face Book, but not necessarily much outside of that context. Others don’t seem to thing there is any such thing as too much and want their friends and followers to know every step they take. I don’t happen to imagine that my daily life is that interesting to most people, that they are not likely to care what I had for lunch, and since I’m not in a relationship or dating there’s not that sort of drama to report.

  2. Everyone has different thoughts on what they should or should not share on social media. Personally, I never share anything relating to politics, religion, or negativity towards work and relationships. However, often times you see people discussing an argument, or even getting into an argument, on Facebook. What one person might think is acceptable to share is unacceptable to another. It truly is a matter of opinion.

  3. Personal, private or family information. Be careful what you say about your job. You never know who is reading your Blog. Try to stay away from discussing your health or finances.

    As my parents used to say, Don’t put your Business out in the Street.

      • She did not. I saw 2 days ago that she is interviewing for a job and posted the location and the name of the company. Some people…

      • Lord Have Mercy! I know that nobody is perfect but Fortunately an acquaintance put me in check. I quickly wised up. Thankfully last year I was able to retire from my job on good terms with full benefits.

        However like the movie, Groundhog Day, some folks are doomed to repeat their mistakes.

      • People like her really amaze me. Watching them like a zoo animal reveals that too many people lack self-awareness and/or common sense. I can’t help but wonder how she doesn’t realize, but I guess you can’t know what you don’t know.

  4. Address, telephone number, DOB, names of your entire family and friends with their addresses and telephone numbers, when you go on holiday and if you are a young girl (or maybe boy) your body, no one wants to see your breasts while they eat their cornflakes 😜

  5. my own personal opinion is that whatever amount of information any individual shares, it will never be too much because there are too much (can I say innumerable?) people on social media with diverse backgrounds, attractions, characteristics, mentalities and what-have-you; i dont think an individual would have too much to give out… did the greatest men ever have too much to give the world? no, i dont think so. one might have too much to produce, but never too much to share.

      • Dray0308,

        it’s either you didn’t understand me, or I didn’t understand your post which asked: “How much is too much to share on social media?”. You may be able to observe that the question is not specific as to any personal/private information; so the next thing I could relate the question to was to your blog: “Dream Big, Dream Often: A blog to inspire and challenege you”.

        In this regard, my answer which encourages “to share as much as you can”, was directed at sharing as much useful information as you can so that your readers who are interested in dreaming big and often, will get as much information as can help them reach that goal.

        This has nothing to do with sharing bank credit details, social security number, passport number, home and office addresses, paypal username and password (if applicable), ATM password, phone number, etc., and other types of personal/private information.

        I apologize in case I offended you with my first comment regarding sharing as much as you can. If you visit my blog you will notice that I am predominantly motivational: I’m about motivation; so when I see posts on my reader related to motivation, even if I don’t know the authors personally, as is the case now, I comment and encourage them to share or give — especially if they make a post related to sharing or giving — because there is a lot of blessing in sharing, caring and giving.

        Regards.

      • You did not offend. Now that you have explained your point, I get it. The question was geared more toward people who share way too much information on Facebook or Twitter that they should probably keep private. Things like where their kids go to school, or marriage problems, home address, etc. Sometimes people forget that bad people use social media as a way to plan to do bad things.

  6. When I was in the United States Army back in the late 1970s we were Taught to answer the phone saying, 569th Personnel Service Company. This line is not secure. More People should take that to heart before some disaster befalls them or their Loved ones. My brother and I were waiting to see Aquaman Christmas day and the guy behind us decided to detail all his past, current and future criminal exploits. Fortunately for us he became so loud that movie Security kicked him out. Same with Facebook. The Police monitor Facebook for criminal activity. Bragging criminals are easily caught.
