Googling a Potential Match

May 13, 2017 | 2 Comments

by Motte Brown

Ever think about your online footprint? I’ve read where more and more employers Google potential job candidates to find out more about them. I have and it’s been somewhat helpful, particularly in my line of work.

If it’s happening with potential employers, it’s probably happening with potential matches.

I just did a quick vanity search for “motte brown” and found a ton of info on me. It helps (or hurts) that I have a unique name and that I’ve written for several fairly high-profile blogs. Follow any one of the links and you might be able to find out my location, political ideology, theology, job title, entertainment choices, and general likes and dislikes.

Though your online footprint may not be as wide as mine, I’ll bet many of you can be found too given only a smidgen of information. Of course, there are safety issues to consider which I’ll address in a follow-up post. But pushing those aside for the purposes of this discussion, what are some things someone could find out about you? And conversely, what are some things you might be interested to find out about a potential match? Or have found out?
