Friday Open Forum – January 14, 2011
Good Morning and Welcome! I repost a FYI that I placed in the open forum comments yesterday. I want to be sure each and every one of you see this:
**There’s a site called http://www.spokeo.com/ that’s a new online USA phone book with your personal info: everything from pics you’ve posted on FB or web, your credit score, home value and pix, income, age, children, etc. Remove yourself by searching for your name, copy the URL of your page, then go to the bottom of the page, click the Privacy button to remove yourself. Copy & re-post so your FB friends are aware.**
Several in our Honey Trail family reported they were successful in removing their names. Then there is AliRose who shared this:
Talk about creepy…
I just searched for myself…not there.
I searched for my husband…not there.
I assumed this is because we move around so much.
So…I searched for my husband’s parents…there they are. There’s their house (with our car in the driveway…heeheehee!), info, etc. I click on family…there’s his parents, brother, sister…he’s not there!
So…I searched for my parents…there they are. There’s their house, info, etc. I click on family…there’s my parents and two sisters…I’m not there!
We’re like ghosts! (The government’s wiped any record of our existence.)
For some strange reason I find myself envying AliRose and her non-existence.
