Windows 7: Should I choose HOME,WORK or PUBLIC Network?

Should I choose HOME,WORK or PUBLIC Network?

When I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit I chose HOME. I have Norton Internet Security 2013 installed. My PC uses ADSL Broadband connection. Should I change the Internet connection to "PUBLIC" (from the Network and Sharing Center) for added security or can I leave it as "HOME"? Adsl is treated as a LAN and my concern is that if set to HOME the PC is shared in the network?? Thanks
