Well, finally on the Twitter band wagon. Due to time constraints posting blog entries is really difficult so jumping to the 140 character variety for now.
If you are like me, you are paranoid about identity theft etc. Also you want to keep your social network private from your professional life.
Now imagine this you enter your name like this "first name last name facebook" into Google and immediately you see your facebook picture and your friends show up.
The reason for this is the default setting in Facebook makes your profile viewable by EVERYONE. Yes Everyone under the sun.
So to turn it off go you need to take a few minutes editing your profile.
Go into Privacy Settings and explicitly say No to "Searchable".
Now try searching yourself or your friends again, and its going to say "Sorry, Page cannot be Found"
