message 1: by Wayne (new)

Wayne Smallman I would imagine the more famous you become, the more people write about you, and the less you want to know about what it is people think about you.


message 2: by Ahmad (new)

Ahmad Ashkaibi Never have...


message 3: by Ninja Neko (new)

Ninja Neko Haha, I thought it said "How often do you use Google yourself" and immediately went for "Everyday"... need to change this now.


message 4: by Amanda (new)

Amanda I've done it every couple of years just to see how much information about me is out on the web now. I prefer to not find myself.


message 5: by Fuglsang (new)

Fuglsang I know this somewhat unpleasant guy whom I'd like not to find my blog, etc. so I do google myself every once in a while to make sure he can't. Once a year, maybe.


message 6: by Lawrence (new)

Lawrence I also Totally misread the poll and thought it meant how often do I use Google...my answer is never.


message 7: by Eyehavenofilter (last edited Jun 12, 2012 08:10PM) (new)

Eyehavenofilter I think others have done it way more than I have, which is only twice, but that's not an option. Sad aren't I?


message 8: by Michelle (new)

Michelle I voted Never because I rarely ever do, maybe once a year if that. I usually use one of several nicknames when I am online. This is probably the only site where I use my real first name. I never use my full name online. So, I have no need to Google my name to see who else has and those who know me personally don't need to lol


message 9: by Val (new)

Val I might now do it for the first time though.


message 10: by Val (new)

Val I found a link to an Australian relative I did know about and a possible one in USA, which I didn't.


message 11: by Josephine (new)

Josephine Right after I voted, I googled myself


message 12: by MizziQ (new)

MizziQ I do it a few times a year just to make sure I can't be googled.


message 13: by Ivonne (new)

Ivonne Rovira Uh, who would write about me? (puzzled expression)


message 14: by Ladyyvonne3817 (new)

Ladyyvonne3817 Rickman WELL, I BELIEVE WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS OUT THERE ON THE WEB ABOUT "OURSELVES"! To ME "IT IS BETTER TO KNOW than NOT TO KNOW"! It is only my opinion!

the same happened to me! xD


message 16: by Laura (new)

Laura bahaha. i misread this poll and didn't realize it was about 'googling' myself!


message 17: by Chris (new)

Chris Stanley Never, my name is far too common, I'd get bored looking for myself!

Oh my god, I did too. Lol


message 19: by Eliza (new)

Eliza Navarro I have google alerts for my name, and a common misspelling of my name. That way every time google documents a new internet page with my name on it I get a notif in my greader. Much more effective than googling.


message 20: by Bill (new)

Bill I agree with Ladyyvonne3817, at least for me; I'd rather know than not know what is out there about me. But I also agree with Chris Stanley that if your name is common, you'd get bored looking for yourself. Also, Kathrine Roid's use of Google Alerts sounds interesting; I might look into it.


message 21: by Eliza (new)

Eliza Navarro But I also agree with Chris Stanley that if your name is common, you'd get bored looking for yourself."
That's very true. "Kathrine Roid" is my internet ID as well as pen name. I currently don't have a thing online under my real name. Using a non de plume let me choose a unique name.


message 22: by Amanda (new)

Amanda I'm just super paranoid and want to make sure that nothing bad is being posted under my name.


message 23: by Courtney (new)

Courtney A few times. My stats in the Track Team and Swimming team came up.
