Please Rob Me and the problem of geo-location records

Please Rob Me points out the obvious to those who have been practicing and preaching the important mantra of online privacy. Constantly broadcasting your location and activities online has the potential of alerting criminals that you may not be at home. My philosophy is it's always better to tell your online followers where you've been, not where you are moment by moment.

  1. A shift in our society has occurred the past few years. We have gone from fearing the security of the internet to anything/everything goes, your nobody unless everything about you is transparent. There is little to no digital hygiene that is of any concern with many of the nets younger users. This is all they have known since High School, so it must be safe, secure, and no problem. I don’t know where this all nets out for privacy and society. Caution is still necessary, storage is unlimited and cheap and everything is connected.
