Police from all agencies, state and federal, are increasingly focusing on social media. Be leery of your posts and those posting on your sites. Perhaps the best protection is to limit who may post on your sites, to only those who are trusted. This will allow you to monitor what others post, by restricting them to send you a private message with their proposed posting.
While the article below is specific to police, the same is true for individuals and groups who choose to wish you harm. The best defense is prevention!

Goggle gaffes? With a market cap of more than $382 billion, incalculable influence over a variety of business sectors, and a name that earned a place in the in 2006, Google is clearly on a roll as we enter the New Year. Yet, as Oxford English Dictionary , the company has had its share of Forbes contributor Gene Marks notes outright flops, and it invests an awful lot of money in products that no one wants to buy. For example, a “solution in search of a problem,” Google Glass has yet to get off the ground. And, because it would likely require giving the government more centralized control over the U.S. transportation system, the driverless car for which Google recently introduced a prototype is apparently years away from being a viable option. But there’s no chance of these seemingly profitless projects taking the tech giant down, according to Marks. Awash with cash from other profitable revenue streams, the company can afford to invest in dream projects that aren’t likely to bring in money anytime soon. Porn again. Illinois became the most recent state to pass a law criminalizing “revenge porn,”sexually explicit photos publicly disseminated (most often by posting them to the Internet) without the subject’s consent, usually by a jilted lover seeking retribution, or by someone who has obtained the pictures by hacking into the victim’s smartphone or computer. The measure, signed into law on December 29, 2014, by Democratic Governor Pat Quinn, makes posting revenge porn a Class 4 felony punishable by one to three years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000. Fourteen other states– including New York, Utah, Texas and California, which recently convicted a man for posting nude photos of his ex – have similar laws. In those states without revenge porn statutes, there are other potential avenues for combatting revenge porn, as we discussed in an early 2014 blog post.
