Protecting your Digital-Self: Free Google Profile

My Google Profile

Today, I'm surprised that most people aren't taking advantage of Google's free profile set-up. With so much of our lives online, and potential clients, employers, other professionals googling our names, who knows what they will find.

I tried to explain this to a relative a few weeks ago, that personal content can and does influence others perceptions about you. It also invites the viewer to ask questions and think they already know you.

This google tool can help you control what others see first. In my case, there are other Michelle Rollins's out there. How will others know who is who?

Policing yourself online is important. Google your name and you maybe surprised as to what you find.
