Have you ever googled your own name? Your significant other’s? Your boss? Your school?
9 out of 10 people will answer yes to all the questions above. (Don’t ask me where I got those statistics from. Hey, the very fact that you are reading this post is enough for me to make up those numbers!)
International Herald Tribune has a very interesting article about how Google has pervaded our lives. She narrates a few incidents where her Googly name (yeah, I made up that word. Googly name: n. A name when Googled returns accurate and more hits) has worked against her.
Funnily enough, she has written this article under a pseudonym.
