Oversharing personal information is bad, whether in line for the train, at lunch with co-workers, and especially online. Most of us have a little voice in our heads that tell us when it's time to shut up during a conversation but for many social networkers that little voice fails to tell them what information to share and what to keep private.

Consumer Reports
surveyed 2,000 households and found that 52% are posting some form of personal information online that falls under risky social media behavior.

In this case we aren't talking about TMI issues like your last trip to the restroom, but more important oversharing violations like giving away their full birth date, photos of children, children's names, home street addresses and posting about being away from home.
