BGP advertised networks

I have a private 10.10.0.0/16 subnet. That subnet is further extend to 25 /24 subnets within my internal network. My WAN is a MPLS network. My FW is doing BGP peering with the provider MPLS router.
Should I advertise a /16 or 25 /24 with the network statement.

Somebody told me, for security purposes, that I should advertise individual specific routes rather than a /16. I am not sure I agree with that. But I'd like to get your thought on this.

Thanks

If all those networks are on the same site, and you use a single router, and no other site is using networks within 10.10/16 - then you can advertise the /16.

It has nothing to do with security.

Only reason to use /24 is if you want to load balance different /24 to different links.
