Local Denver station offers dire advice about social media and insurance companies

A Denver television station carried a story in March reporting on insurance companies’ looking up consumers on social media.  This has been written about before, especially with respect to possible suspected fraud on claims. But this video, toward the end, takes it further.

Toward the end, the video takes the position that no one should post pictures from vacation except to private lists.  But the broadcast was motivated by spring break for college students, who likely have some roommates back on campus or who may be in dorms anyway.  Furthermore, many people have so many Facebook friends of Twitter or Instagram followers that “private mode” would hardly guarantee security.
