Smartphone Pictures Can Reveal Your Child's EXACT Location

If you post pictures of yourself or your family on Facebook, Flickr, etc., you may be revealing your or your child's EXACT location to strangers who have no business knowing.  Watch this NBC News video on YouTube:

Go get your cel phone right now and disable the geotagging capability on the camera.  This website has directions for iPhones, Droids, Blackberries, etc.:

iPhone: Settings, Location Services, Camera, Off.

Blackberry: Camera, Options, Geotagging, Disable.

A few people have checked their phone settings and were relieved to find the geotagging on their cameras was disabled by default.  Make sure yours is, or get it done asap.
