I read a few public journals where the writer gives almost everything about themselves away. Things such as the route they take to work, what city they live in, what their apartment looks out onto, what softball team they play on, where they go on the weekend etc. They also post pictures of themselves, and sometimes even of their children!
These people could easily be tracked down if someone wanted to find them. Do people just not worry about their safety anymore, or the safety of their children?
I'm extremely nervous every time I make a public entry, plus I never give away too much specific information, and I'd most certainly never post a picture of myself or my children (if I had any, I don't even post pictures of my pets!).
