I'll bet you think that I'm going to write about someone from my craigslist dealings - well, I'm not.
Did you realize that anyone, and I mean ANYONE can look you up these days - and FIND you!
On Thanksgiving while I was checking my facebook, I saw on the sidebar a picture of a familiar face. The heading was something to do with Classmates trying to find you. The person who was in the photo was not a classmate, but an old boyfriend...a stalker boyfriend from the mid-90's. He just can't help but continue his stalking ways by now looking me up on facebook. I had, just a week before that, added my maiden name to my facebook because someone that I was real classmates with was trying to set up our 25th reunion (yeah, I'm old). When I saw stalker-boys face, I immediately got rid of my maiden name and only use my married name on facebook again.
Well, today as I was facebooking, his picture came up again - this time the sidebar title was "See who Googled you" and it says "Updated January 26". UGH! Now he's Googling me.
I asked one of the ladies at work to look me up on facebook and see what she sees (since she is not my "friend") and it seems that she could see ALL my photos and movies. So, we got another co-worker involved and asked him how to shut that stuff up! He helped me out and now, only my friends can see that stuff.
But, it's obviously too late. I Googled myself and this blog is out there along with other things. Links I click on not only go to me, but to stuff that my husband has put out there.
I would hope that 15 years will have matured stalker-boy and that he is just curious to see how I look these days (fat and old :) ) and not going to be up to any of his old tricks.
