    There's a site called spokeo.com that's a new online USA phone book w/personal information: everything from pics you've posted on FB or web, your approx credit score, home value, income, age. Remove yourself by searching your name, find the URL of your page, then go to the bottom right corner of the page and click on the Privacy button to remove yourself. Copy & re-post so your FB friends are aware.

    ALWAYS assume EVERYTHING you post online will be seen by everyone in the world.
    Every picture, every word, every video...
    "Online privacy" is an oxymoron, and only a moron (or an internet newb) would think otherwise.
    Passwords only keep honest people out of your business.

    If people were honest you wouldn't need passwords.

    If people were honest you wouldn't need passwords. [/quote]Yes you would. It would prevent accidental info leakage...which is all they protect against anyway.

    I typed my legal name and got my parent's house. Fine by me. I typed my fake name which I go by everywhere (including here) and got nothing. I have outsmarted the internets. =)

    Apparently Bullwinkle Moose moved out of Frostbite Falls and into St. Paul. (As in the real cartoon character and not me. I don't live in st. paul, kthx)

    As for me, I couldn't find me. Unless it's in the future, in which case, I found out what part of Cali I'll wind up moving to. Spooky!

    They got my gender wrong, and it only included my parents' house. No biggy.

    Hahaha I'm glad I'm not listed in this directory. I'm so paranoid about this crap I've taken measures to make sure I don't appear in these search engines. YET when you search for my by name on a search engine it takes you to my personal website. icon_lol.gif

    HAHAHA...my info on there is so messed up it's funny. icon_eek.gif

    I use my father's last name, but legally, my mother's name is included in my surname....and that has thrown them off. Another funny error is a condo I own is on school street, which has morphed into 'scholar' street LOL.
