Social Media Tips for Travel
The Heads of State
Best Practices: How to be Savvy (and Safe) on Social Media
Most social-media apps are location-enabled, so be smart about what personal details you divulge. If you’re traveling alone or are uncomfortable revealing your physical location, consider updating your social media channels only after you’ve left a restaurant or checked out of your hotel.
Being “social” is fun, but you should always feel safe. Pay attention to your surroundings—walking while texting is never a good idea.
If you plan to stay connected when you travel, make sure your smartphone battery can handle all your tweeting, check-ins, photography, and videos—and leave enough juice to call a cab or map your way back to the hotel.
