Don’t tweet that you’re away

Be careful when you post personal details on social networking sites. One national newspaper has reported that insurers are refusing to pay claims if you have your home address on Facebook and then report on Twitter that you’re on holiday.

The article in The Observer has reported research from The Cooperative Insurance that a quarter of those using social networking sites post pictures of their cars and homes, and 14 per cent publish their address. Now insurers are refusing to pay claims if the policyholder then reports on Twitter that they are on holiday.
