Sure we have all googled our name (i.e., going to http://www.google.com and typing your name in the search box) but have you ever googled your screen name on the internet? You might be surprised at what you find.

LOL I am active on Myspace, and this game is often posted in bulletins there. Funny! I have done it on a few occasions and the outcome is always different. And very funny or even disturbing sometimes!

I just did this - to find out what would happen - and I got a list of all the posts that I have done on MyLot! What a handy tip if you need to do a search like this.

Yes I have and I found out I'm not the only greengal out there..lol So many of them have Greengal as their user names on various other programs. Luckily nothing related to me or myLot came up. I did this a few weeks ago when another user pointed out a lot of information is available which isn't right.Nothing came up for me, so I'm ok.

I am shocked what you see out there. Some of it is obviously for another linda345. I did no I could be found on the internet by my screen name. How to people determine which is me and which is someone else using the same screen name?

You're not kidding...I was surprised at how many times my screen name appeared. A lot of it wasn't pertaining to me, but it did show a lot of my discussions here at myLot and a few others things I've posted online at different sites. But it also showed plenty of stuff that had nothing to do with me, but was by someone else who had this screen name at other sites. Very interesting, and I guess it could be very scary in certain instances.

What a fun idea, I haven't, but maybe I will take a minute and do so. I will of course find myLot by doing so.

I have, it is kind of scary isn't it? It makes you wonder. You had better watch what you post and things you say.

I just tried it. Nothing came up under soccermom, probably because it's such a popular phrase. When I checked my screen name for another site though all the posts I had put on there came up. No big deal, I never go to that site anymore. :) However I was miffed at what I found on zabasearch.com when I searched myself.
