    Security Issue

    Most Cell Phones made these days can Geotag photos with the GPS coordinates where the photo was taken. A very nice feature but it can get you in trouble. This feature should be turned off or the data removed from the photo before posting photo on the internet. That includes ALL the internet.

    No offense but unless you're a celebrity or have committed a crime, no one will show up at your doorstep for taking a picture and posting it here...lol. (well, maybe some psycho out there would) Good point though...I've always deactivated that feature in every device I own!

    So you are aware of the issue. Good.

    Not so much here maybe but how about Craigslist?

    That was the "Drama" part to get your attention!

    Yeah Craigslist would be the worst place to post a photo with the tagging!
