Teaching kids about posting personal information online

We really need to teach children not to post too much personal information online. Letting people know their name, their address and their phone number in the wrong environment, is a dangerous thing to do. Although some of that information is also readily available at places like Spokeo.com, we want to teach our children that privacy is important. They should never share things like how they are feeling or their vacation status, because this will draw the wrong kind of attention, from the wrong kind of people.
