Are you announcing your whereabouts on Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare, or other social media platforms?

The pitfalls of too much sharing have been all too evident lately, with a rash of robberies and destructive party-crashings after the victims publicized their plans on social media sites.

Apparently, insurance companies have noticed as well. Be warned: You could be one status update away from higher home insurance premiums. (#OMG. #HigherHomeInsurance?)

At least, this is the speculation of the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph.
