Re: Only if I really, REALLY need a connection

Yes, it can, but that information isn't being broadcast to my friends or anyone who may have hacked into their or my Facebook accounts. If I check in at a Starbucks on the other side of the country, that's a pretty good indication that I'm not home, and if I happen to also mention that my wife is with me, that's a pretty good indication that no one is at our house. Even worse would be telling everyone how much we're looking forward to going to Hawaii next week (we're not, although a guy can dream). And people do this stuff, never stopping to think that this information is gold to a burglar.
