ME, Me, Everywhere!

I did today what most people do at some point in time:  I did a search on Google for “Scott Vannatter” (sans the “”).

It returned with 26,800 finds.  Rather than write a post that would stretch on for the length of a small novel, I wandered through the first 15 pages and pulled anything that truly had to do with me, and not the other bunch sharing my name or last name.  Amusing?  Yes, and I thought I would share with you just a bit.

  1.  My LinkedIn profile
  2. My Facebook profile  – I am the 2nd one, the one with hat and dark glasses ( actual page )
  3. White pages – From Middletown and just found out my 2nd wife remarried, Interesting.
  4. My Amazon Kindle Collection 
  5. My Twitter Account
  6. My Kevin Bufton Books (1 story in each) on Goodreads
  7. My Google+ page 
  8. A Scam reporting page (I am down a bit on the list)
  9. A Page about My Father’s Death 
  10. Page from School where I taught
  11. My Cousin – a page
  12. A comment I made on Grace for Retts, a post I have followed for years.  Worth a look! Home page
  13. My UK Amazon Kindle Page
  14. A brief listing about my son – decided not to give link for his own privacy
  15. A Digitized copy of my MA diploma program (not sure why the names and things are crossed out, but I am in the very top section!)

There you have the Internet of Me!  Not really exciting, but does show how much info is collected on someone over the years. There could be, I suppose, a few more in the remaining 26K+ entries I didn’t try, however, it is doubtful as relevance goes down as the list continues.

How about Googling yourself?  Have you ever Googled someone else?  Dating someone? Spouse? Children? Neighbor?

Just nosey, that’s all.  This was, basically, to help you understand that you really do need to keep your private info private.  I try hard not to give out anything that I would care if anyone found out about it.
