Crime: Tweeting her whereabouts and current activity
What Happened: The members of the Bling Ring, a group of young people who robbed celebrity homes, used Google Earth to find the location of Hilton’s home and how best to gain access. More importantly, they knew she would not be home thanks to the socialite’s tweets.
Lesson Learned: Let’s face it, odds are no one is going to stalk a CIO, but leaving a trail of your whereabouts isn’t wise for anyone. Avoid the LinkedIn add-on for My Travel, which lets you post your upcoming travel schedules. It would also be wise to request your home address be blocked from Google Earth and Maps (visit the help section of Google Street View to do this).
