Just the crop of the picture. None of the other information. Would that be safe?

It's never safe to leave any trace yourself online.

How would anyone know it's your passport photo unless it has a watermark. A passport photo can just be a photo of yourself that you went to CVS and had taken and printed. I don't see how it would hurt you. If a doppelganger found it, but he wouldn't need it. Although in SW Florida a woman came her after she killed her husband, made friends with a woman she looked like and killed her and stole her identity.

There's nothing "safe" about using social media. Only post information that you don't mind sharing with the entire planet.

So... just the passport photo? It'd be no more harmful than having a regular picture in a similar pose...

Digital photos commonly come with an integrated data file giving such things as shutter speed, camera info, and even location and time. It is referred to as EXIF
