So, the other day a friend was telling me that he googles himself all the time... I am not sure why... maybe just to make sure he is staying under the radar or getting good press... I don't get it, he's definitely not famous or anything.
It's a bit egocentric for sure, but I decided to try it.
I have often said that I totally fear any sort of photos (not that I have taken any compromising ones) appearing on the internet. I just know that any that make it into cyber space will clearly look like the ones I take for the ward meat market catalog... which are never pretty! I fear this the same way my sister-in-law fears being filmed from behind as 60-minutes pans the crowd of people for the latest "over 80% of Americans are fat" series. She really does! Good thing she beautiful and tiny, so she's in the clear.
On the other hand, I DID see some frightening photos of me. Turns out the only reason I even appear on google is that I have run a dozen or so half- and full- marathons in the past few years... so you can imagine how hot the images are of me after 4 hours of running... Best thing about it is that before Christmas a few years back the company at the marathon who took the photos (from the ground up, mind you), sent me one in a Christmas-type photo frame requesting that I purchase some to send out for Christmas!!! I thought it was a joke, but it wasn't!
I am siding with Viacom these days... Google is so overrated!
That being said... has anyone else ever googled themselves? I am dying to know which of my friends is the most famous and why.
