A correlation between My truck for sale and we are going to the Superbowl game has resulted in several home burglaries when they knew the location and when you won't be home. For this reason, I don't post cell phone photos. A Non GPS camera is used.
Just strip the metadata before using the photo. If you're still paranoid you can open up the image in a hex editor to check before using.
