It is best if you never criticize your teacher or your boss on the social networks. You have no idea about the ways and links through which there is always a probability that your boss would be able to see the post. It is also unethical to criticize a person on their back.

In the year 2009, there was a case about an employee getting fired because he had asked for a leave from his workplace on a weekend and told the boss that he was sick. But the same weekend, his boos saw his pictures on Facebook in which he was at a party the same weekend. It is recommended that you keep your personal and professional life apart.
5. Company Information
Sharing the information about your company is indeed dangerous, no matter how delightful the other person might be. You would be dying to share with your customers all the information about your future business plans and packages, but at the same time, your competitors might also make use of this information. You have no idea about the impact of this action on your sales, so always wait for the right time to make an announcement about your business promotions.
4. Financial Information
Never give out any sort of financial information to any three party online shop or company no matter how much credible they might be. You have no idea about the manner in which your financial information can be exploited on the social network. Whether it be the information about your bank name or credit card number, never disclose anything.
3. Your Address
Can anyone be so stupid to disclose information about one’s address? As a matter of fact that there are a number of people who engage in this stupidity. By disclosing this form of information, you become susceptible to various types of identity and property thefts. Even your phone number can lead the thieves to your address.
2. Password Hint
It is never wise of you to disclose your password hint or even give your password to your partner. Even if you need to check an important mail, never give your password to your friend or to even your girlfriend in order to check it out for you. Now if you happen to have a fight or a breakup with your friend or partner, just imagine in what ways the person might come to exploit you. You will realize the fact that there is a person who likes you the least and even has information about your account.
1. Things you don’t Want
Any photo or video of yours, no matter how amazing or embarrassing it might be, can be shared all over the internet. I am sure that none of you will never want to see your naked photo on some cheap adult website or link. Girls should be even more careful in posting their photos and images, as they have no idea about the lusty males who spend most of their time viewing the profile photos of their female friends and acquaintances.
Use Facebook and all other social networks for the purpose they were designed and not for the sake telling the world what you are, what you want to be, how many brothers and sisters you have and all other related personal non-sense.
