The trick is to be careful what you share, a user on Twitter told Engadge. 

I’m not saying you shouldn’t share anything, just that you should take a few extra precautions.

“Don’t share personal information with your friends and family.

I know this is a biggie, but do some research and do some homework before you share.

Don’t share your porn collection with anyone, not even your friends,” he wrote. 

Another said: “You should not share your personal information, including email address, with anyone who asks for it.

If someone does ask for it, be prepared to explain why you can’t share.”

This user, who went by @TrollTales, added: Don’t put anything in your profile that is not safe for work, family, friends, or pets. 

A third user, @sarahharrison, added that she was a little more cautious.

“I do think people who have sex with animals should be able to share the information, but I wouldnt recommend sharing your partner’s sexual activity,” she wrote.

“I would just say, when you share porn, please put the source and link in a separate box.” 

Finally, a woman from the US wrote that she did not share her husband’s porn collection.

“He isnt a big fan of porn.

I only share it with his closest friends and my wife and kids,” she said.”

If they are sharing it with anyone else, please give them credit and link to the site.”
