Social Networking pushing up home contents insurance premiums.

Hi All
[quote="Social Burglary, U.K. Style"]
In case anyone thinks the risk of theft resulting from over-sharing on social networks is fabricated, a new report from the Association of British Insurers is warning that home insurance premiums may rise up to 10% this year. While the ABI report didn't list specific numbers, it made clear that the potential hike is due, in part, to an increase in home invasions resulting from people revealing their whereabouts on social networks.

And have a look at "Please Rob Me"
