S/O google searching your name

I did a quick search of my phone number and couldn't find anything. However, I did a google search of my name and several pictures of me and my children came up under google images. How about you? I looked for my husband and same thing. It is so weird to me! Btw, my FB profile is "private"

Cover photos cannot be made private. Are those the ones that are showing?

My cover photo comes up, but also several other pictures of my kids that were never cover photos. I wonder if someone else added the pics, tagged me and they had them set as public?

Re: S/O google searching your name

Hmmm. I hate FB for this reason. I google myself periodically and this was the first time I found anything. They have a lot of my sibling relationships figured out on mylife.com but also have me related to my husband's grandparents (who passed before FB...).

Can't find anything on my husband. We have a common last name though -- Jesus' profession! It's likely my Italian maiden name that they are getting info from.

See, I found more on myself this time too. I think the timeline has changed privacy tremendously. It sorta creeped me out that there were so many public pictures of my kids. They had a lot of my personal info figured out too. Creepy. I was able to find quite a few pictures of my husband too.

Re: S/O google searching your name

Nothing on the "real" me shows up. If I use my married name (not my legal last name) a bunch of stuff about my SIL shows up. I know her driving history, for some reason, always shows up on our insurance and I have to get it removed. Totally odd, because her legal name and my legal name are NOTHING alike.

Re: S/O google searching your name

I googled myself and my facebook profile came up. I googled my husband and a bunch of photos popped up in google images from when we lived in thailand. He was in the local expat newspaper all the time. The weirdest thing is all these photos of our friends popped up in google images also from when we lived in thailand. Dh isn't even in those photos.

Re: S/O google searching your name

All i got was all my social media sites like pinterest, fb, twitter, twidvid, lastfm,formspring, myspace, we <3 it, etc.

nothing for google images. Luckily for me there is a famous dead singer with a very similar name so google likes her more.

Re: S/O google searching your name

My Etsy profile came up. Ha ha! I'm not worried about it, I'm no where near famous so I doubt anyone would be looking for me. Plus, I live in the same town I've lived in since I was 4 years old. If someone wanted to find me it wouldn't be hard. The only part that I don't like is that my hubby is a cop so if someone wanted to find him, well, that is a bit scary, but he is usually armed and we have a house alarm and God so I'm just going to smile and not worry about it.
