False. Some folks may worry that they have somehow invalidated their home insurance policy if they have advertised that they are away. Fortunately, this is untrue. You can claim theft of your property through your home insurance (adhering to, of course, all policy limits which are explained in detail in your policy), regardless of if you had announced your vacation on a social media platform. That said, you should be very careful what you say on Facebook, Twitter, and all other social media outlets. Never announce when you’ll be away from home, as you never know who’s watching! Save the vacation updates for after you return.
