Announcing about your upcoming trip on your social media might seem harmless but uploading the picture of your boarding pass is a definite no.

By putting your personal details online, you are putting yourself at risk.

Not just this, posting particular pictures on social media can endanger your job, your relationship and your identity as well. It’s important to watch what you post.

Here’s a list of 10 photos that you should never post on social media.

1. ​Someone else’s announcement

If your sister called you to tell you she is pregnant or got engaged, do not just post about the same on social media out of excitement. If an announcement doesn’t involve you directly, do not post about it first. Wait for people involved to do it.

2. ​Birth certificate

Posting your identity information on social media is equivalent to losing it. It puts you at the risk of identity theft. According to the Identity Theft Resource Centre, allowing this government document to fall in the hands of strangers can do permanent damage. It’s the bedrock of your identity and helps you get other important documents.

3. Boarding pass

Your followers might already know your name but if you post your boarding pass, they might come to know your destination as well. Your PNR can be jeopardized with a social post. Based on your booking number and the details of the dates when you won’t be at your house, criminals can rob your house in your absence.

4. ​Money

Posting pictures of cheques, credit/debit card or cash online is just inviting trouble. Doing this increases your chances of getting mugged. Also, do not post pictures that give away the information of your financial information like bank name.

5. Confidential work emails

If your company sent an exciting email about any new product or idea, the last thing you should do is, post it online and let your competition know.

​6. Memories from a drunken night

You should never post anything on social media that you do not want your potential employer to see. Though picture with a glass of beer in your hands is no more an issue, your repeated photos showing you intoxicated will not have a good impression on anyone.

7. Lottery ticket

If you are lucky enough to win a lottery ticket, do not turn it against you by posting it online. Criminals can replicate the barcode and steal your reward.
