I knew many of you are internet savvy but I just ran across something on another site that really bothered me so I thought I would share the incident.
I use another website for home and garden advice. The search function is archaic so people often Google user names to find a post in the site. This morning I Googled a user name to find a post. I didn't get that many hits but I was shocked to see how much I could find out about this person from her user name. I got the results that I was searching for plus hits on an acne board, a weight loss board, a health board and a travel board!
We all know that nothing on the net is private. I was still surprised how shockingly easy it was to find out a tremendous amount of personal information about this woman without even trying. Be smart about user names, especially when posting sensitive information!
