Ever wonder what social media says about you?

Have you ever asked the Oracle (The Wisdom of the Oracle) about who you are? You know, type in your first and last name on the internet and then select the search option. I thought to myself that I am pretty well hidden from the public eye, off social media and maybe even almost off-grid. And yet this is what I found:

  • 15 Profiles on Facebook
  • 7 LinkedIn profiles (one is actually mine!)
  • 1 Twitter account
  • 1 YouTube account
  • 1 Pinterest account
  • A French-English translation service
  • Results from the 1940 census
  • Manuscript preparations for a publication of an economic book
  • Results from a phone tracker
  • Divorce records
  • Drakensburg Northern trail run results

So let me sum it up for you:

According to social media, I appear to be a divorced individual, born in the earlier half of the 20th century (as I was part of the 1940 census). An avid trail runner, fluent in French and of course English. For this I offer a translation service (I do hope I make some money from this!). Apparently I also write, despite having a publisher. All in the name of Economics. You know, take risks and then figure out the fine print later (excuse the pun)! I am also an avid user of social media tools despite my age. Maybe even important or popular enough to be easily located in the so-called yellow pages.

Mmm…

I have to admit that only one point is true and quite frankly, I love to be the me as I am today, than the me social media (Social Media or Social Murder) has concocted me to be.

Worth some looking into!
