Nearly 4 Out of 5 Burglars Use Social Networks to Find Empty Homes

Nearly 4 Out of 5 Burglars Use Social Networks to Find Empty Homes: "ccording to a study out of the United Kingdom from Credit Sesame, approximately 78 percent of ex-burglars use Twitter, Foursquare and Facebook to identify properties with absent homeowners. This includes people that use location-enabled status updates or pictures to identify when they are at work or on an extended vacation. In addition, nearly three out of four ex-burglars use Google Street View to check out the quality of the home in addition to various escape routes within a neighborhood."
