Your Google Profile is now public

My Google Profile

My Google Profile

Wow! So the main reason I’ve been blogging is to create my own digital footprint. I hated when I googled my name, it never pulled up. At least it never pulled up me specifically. Mainly because I have one of the most common names ever. So now that the word on the street is Google has made our profiles public, it got me thinking. How important is to me that I’m searchable? Do I really want people to know where I work, what city I live in, what my kid looks like, etc? Especially with so many psychos out there.

By the way if you don’t want your profile to go public, you can always hide it. Read a great Fast Company article about this here.
