Poll for this. Are you comfortable with how much info about you is online and publicly available?

Personally I set my FB setting to maxium private, profile unsearchable, name isn't real name. And I randomly google my name, mobile number, address etc once so often to make sure any entries on me are scrubbed (ie remove original data if possible then remove from google search and if I can't then then I send correspondence threatening legal action to any websites that refuse to remove the entry)

You might say I'm paranoid about this but a while back, a mate whom I hadn't seen told me something I never expected him to know and since then I've taken steps to protect my privacy online.

Since Ive an online portfolio, and rely heavily on the internet to advertise my work, most of the information about me is available readily (except the personal stuff, Ive got my twitter/facebook on private).

Hello everyone,

Would you be able to take 5 minutes to complete my questionnaire for my dissertation. The questionnaire is about social networking sites and the privacy issues concerned.

I would really appreciate it. I am happy to do yours in return
