According to one statistic, 78% of Americans have a social media profile they use to stay connected with friends, family, and neighbors.  By 2020, it is estimated that more than 200 million people in the United States will have an account on a social media site to connect with others.
Networking usually allows new contacts to be formed as well as the opportunity to reconnect with old contacts.  However, exercise caution when interacting on these websites and the homeowners association website so you refrain from disclosing personal information.
What Should You Remember?

A social media account provides many benefits but there are risks involved that all homeowners need to keep in mind.  Everything you share on a social media outlet should always be done with the mindset that a stranger could view it.  If you share personal information, a stranger might use that information to try and steal your identity.  Each year, approximately 15 million Americans are a victim of identity theft.
Limit what others see by changing the privacy and security settings of your account so that your personal information stays private.  Share your views with everyone in your home in order for them to know what they are allowed to post online to ensure your identity stays protected.  Additionally, inform family members and friends about your limitations when it comes to social media so they respect your wishes.  Could your vacation threaten your safety?
Stay Mindful At All Times

The excitement of going on vacation may often cloud your judgment on what you post to social media about your future travel plans.  Be mindful of what you share and choose passwords that include a combination of letters, symbols, and numbers to minimize the possibility of your account being hacked.  Top priority should be your safety so network with neighbors and visit the homeowners association website to get the latest advice.
