Good information to know.

Also check out the documentary movie CATFISH (We rented ours) This movie was started from a incident on face book. It is all real, no actors. It gives you an idea what can happen

Wow, this is one time I'm glad I have an "old-fashioned" cell phone without a GPS.

according to the story, some "regular" digital cameras are also GPS enabled. who knew? :shock:

i'm fairly certain that photos posted here are safe.

i checked a few of the photos i've posted here, plus a few randomly selected from other members' posts.

I was not able to bring up any GPS data. if anybody checks their own photos posted here and is able to bring up GPS data, please let me know so I can consult the tech team.

thank goodness i've always been too cheap to buy a fancy-shmancy camera, and my phone takes lousy pics! :lol:
