Holidaymakers are being warned against boasting about their trip on social media as it could be used by criminals planning a burglary, according to a think tank.
This information can be seized by thieves - according to research from Demos, some 78% of ex-burglars said they strongly believed social media platforms are being used to target property.
Research by The Co-Operative Insurance found over half (51%) of holidaymakers admitted to using social media to post reports of what they were up to abroad.
Some 68% of 18-24-year-olds posted about their holidays online while they were away, the data showed.
However, only 32% of the over 55s were as carefree with their holiday snaps on social media.
