MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. Advertising your vacations on social networking websites can make you a target for burglars, a senior Moscow policeman said on Wednesday.

"Some simple advice can help minimize the risks of burglary," Eduard Bogatyrev said. "Do not publish vacation photos on social networking sites. These photos can help burglars determine the level of one’s income and the place where the person is spending vacations."

He also said holidaymakers should leave all windows closed and ask neighbors to empty their mailboxes.

According to police, some 50% of burglaries in Moscow are committed by guest workers from other Russian cities and former Soviet republics.
