Have you ever googled yourself?

So I did this the other day typed in my full name on google and clicked pictures. Never in my life though Google was my biggest creeper but seriously.. Lol I googled other people too but I still was the only one with quite a few pictures up there. So google your self it's scary. Haha

  • Yes, and it's harder to find information about me since my name is common thankfully. You have to know more than my name to find any links to me. It is still scary when you find information on yourself. As others have mentioned, there are ways to get rid of it if you want.

    • Hmm ways to get rid of it I need to figure that out. I mean I use a lot of social media but all my pages are private restricted to friends only but apparently that's not enough anymore.

    • Sure, no problem. :) Yes, you can keep your blog open to the public, but hide your social media accounts. You really just have to watch and re-check all of your privacy settings. Those settings change often, so that may be why things of yours may have been hidden at one time, but are not now.

    • Thank you for MHO!

    • I can understand that. I think the More common names come up with way less or if your name is the same as a celeb then you have no chance of coming up haha

    • Yeah if your name is John Smith... lol you probably won't be the first guy to pop up on google, if you type my name in i am on the first page, and so is my fathers info, which is scary

    • Haha same with me even though my name is kind of common well last name not so much but yeah either way it's scary.

  • Yes, I found my facebook and other minor things. No pictures.

  • I do and often. I usually do so to keep the amount of personal information about myself available on the net to a minimum. If I see something I'm not comfortable with I'll usually contact the appropriate person or persons on that website and request my information be removed

  • I have to check my social media security settings cos anyone to google you and click on your social media if its public. So I change my social media settings and I check what comes up. I usually, put a block on Google coming up with my social media pages as a search and put them on private. Its is a bit creepy. Other people have googled my social media but for harassment purposes and I had a few people make up hate threads and hate pages other googling my social media.

    • I'm going to look into this I didn't know you could block Google from accessing your info. I'm sorry people are jerks to you. I've had that happen too people are little bitches lol. But thanks for mentioning that I need to look into it now.
