The rate at which new technology develops allows people to do amazing stuff everyday. Unfortunately, this rule also applies to criminals. The good news is SimpliSafe’s apartment alarm system(http://SimpliSafe.com/apartment-alarm-system) also uses cutting edge technology to help protect social media users and their apartments.

Virtual social network sites and applications like Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare allow users to post their real-life location and travel plans, but are also helping provide burglars with vital information about targets and their whereabouts. The controversial website Pleaserobme.com highlights this phenomenon. A 2009 survey found that at least 38% of users of Facebook and Twitter have posted status updates detailing their holiday plans, while another 33% have posted status updates saying they are away for the day or weekend.

Yet most users are still unaware of the potential risks these updates can bring. The same 2009 survey also found that nearly half (48%) of respondents have no worries about the security or privacy of social networking sites.

As new social networking sites are introduced, users easily lose track of just how much information are giving away, making securing their apartments more important than ever before. Fortunately, SimpliSafe is making it easy for people to protect and monitor their apartments, whether they are in town or away from home.

SimpliSafe’s burglar alarm is specifically designed for the new online generation. Using innovative wireless technology and the latest cellular communication technology, SimpliSafe has designed a system that does not require the use of a landline. The apartment security system is professionally monitored for just $14.99/month. Now renters and condo owners alike have an affordable and manageable way to know their homes are safe 24 hours a day, no matter what information they post or tweet.
