Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is best to have a rule that you don't post anything on the Internet that you don't want the whole entire world to know.  Because you aren't just talking among friends, you are posting something on a bulletin board anyone in the world can look at.  Is it a violation of privacy if someone gets the info you post?  Not really.  But is it creepy and disturbing anyway?  Yes!  

From personal experience, sometimes the people that read such info just want to spoil your day because you've said something they don't like or which counters their world-view and they find that they can can get in your face a bit.

Yes, this happened to me and possibly could have lost my job if somebody had been a fraction more vindictive. The online world is not entirely populated with rational and kind people.

Do not be afraid, but do be wary.
