Think You've Got Privacy?

Check yourself out on Spokeo.

That referenced site is definitely creepy for covert stalkers and curious seekers in spying on others.

I briefly had MySpace and Facebook accounts years ago. Now since closed and shut down. Facebook was founded with CIA seed money.

I just closed Twitter because I found it to be a gigantic waste of time. Sure, it's microblogging, but what's the use for me? Letting buddies know what I'm doing in real life?

The information superhighway have become too centralized that compromises privacy. Even my name, age and address come up on people search engines.

It's too bad that the Internet is becoming a machine unto itself that collects private, personal information about you if you are not discreet enough.

The best way to avoid having identification online with compromising details is to avoid opening online accounts at all, besides secure online banking access.

There are ways to opt out of people search engines. However, most of the Internet is "forever" - if you post something it can get cached even if deleted.
