We recommend all parents and guardians take some time to talk to their children and young people about the risks associated with revealing your location via social media apps.
Discuss their phone and app security settings and encourage them to check them on a regular basis.
You can help protect yourself and/or your children by learning how these sites work and talking them through some basic advice: Location Mapping As social media apps become ever more sophisticated and popular, especially with young people, it is important that parents and guardians are aware of the 'location mapping' feature which is now a key feature in a number of popular social media apps.
When posting using an app with this feature enabled, your location is accurately pinpointed on the apps virtual map, posing a potential risk.
Never share images online you wouldn’t be happy for your friends, family or others seeing and be aware that webcam pictures can be recorded and shared without your knowledge. It is important to report incidents where you are the victim of online extortion. Victims should contact Police Scotland on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
If they are meeting friends, encourage them to use private messaging or text messages to make the arrangements.
It is also worth making them aware that 'checking in' at a location and tagging friends in posts shares real time information.
Since users access these sites from their own homes, they can sometimes forget that the internet is really a public space.
This means they can be tempted to share more information than is sensible or safe, or to act in ways they may not do normally.
