WTF...our Post's on other sites

I was reading a question from a fellow blogger on the Advice Lines and she talked about finding her profile and blog on another site.
I keep reading all of the replies and the last one suggested everyone goggle their AdultFriendFinder handle to see what comes up.

Well just fucking everything!

I'm just not very sure what to think here. Several people said that in the AdultFriendFinder fine print it says that you give your permission for them to do this, but I'm thinking that this is bullshit.

Fucking Bullshit!

I'm I being a little naive here or is anyone else somewhat concerned that our private thoughts between what we thought were close-nit, like minded friends being broadcast out on the internet for anyone to see concerned also.

Please let me know your thoughts on this.

I know, it could be if the wrong people were to gain access to the free info. out there. It could ruin some peoples lives.

i goggled both AdultFriendFinder and alt names... imzadi being ST-NG it comes up with that a lot but my blog for AdultFriendFinder came up.. and then the discussion things but not my profile but under alt it did...

AdultFriendFinder asked for them to join before seeing it.

there are a lot out here and more join everyday... so were open to nearly anyone reading our things.

I don't have an issue with members of this site or even perhaps other adult sites reading my blog. I was able to access blogs from google, of mine and other friends and that I have an issue with. I was even able to pull up my profile and read it from the google link.
Thanks for the reply.

I knew about the google thing, when I first joined AdultFriendFinder, via the magazine section. At first I was annoyed about it also, but then I thought about it some more, and it no longer bothered me.

My regular email addresses and ISP screen names, are extremely different than the one I chose when I joined AdultFriendFinder. Only a member of AdultFriendFinder or someone I trusted to give this screen name to, would know about it. So if they chose to google it, no big deal, since the information they would get from that, is the same information they could view via AdultFriendFinder.

In the case of those of you, that may be using the same screen name as your regular email accounts/ISP addresses for AdultFriendFinder, I would advise changing your AdultFriendFinder screen name, to something extremely different than those of your regular accounts. This way you can protect yourself from the google search.

Best wishes to all!

Thanks for your comments. All of my names are different but just seeing my picture on google really got under my skin.

besides being completely searchable on all search engines (which is stated as a 'your profile might be...' in the TermsOfUse), you might find you're featured on something like 18 or more other sites, which for many includes sites like lesbianpersonals and such....

I know....the bastards....and forever.

However it also states that they will not release any information that might reveal your identity...and by allowing anyone (non-member) outside of the Vision Corp. sites to view a photo is a clear violation of their right to privacy terms because a photo can clearly identify a person.

That said, I hope I get a few replies from the lesbianpersonals site.

This was a discovery I made within my first 2 weeks online. Freaked me out in the beginning, but then I thought ... well, I sorta made me public by just being here, online, on site.
So, I shook out all the cobwebs,(didn't want to catch nuttin', chased out all the skeletons in the closet (there's only so many bones a girl can play with ) and decided that being an Illusive Illusion is the best way to avoid a sticky situation.
Can you really truly know someone if they don't want you to?
Everyone is honest here to a certain degree, but caution is always advised and practiced. I hope this makes us "cyber-wise". It was hard enough to learn on the streets, now you have use those principals online
Little tips, alter the date to your real birthday, try not to speak about too much personal surroundings, job, life or friends. You only want to share that with the selected few, not the world at large. And does your town have more than one zip code? It's useful information if you truly want to be cautious. Most folks do, these days.

BTW ~~ Thank you for the "candy treat". I'm very flattered by your kindness.
warm huggies & maggie {=}

See thats what I like about you Maggie....[if thats your real name ]
Your such a....a....pragmatist....yeh....thats the word I was looking for. You stop by my blog with your kind words of wisdom, give me little tips, and always end with hugs and kisses. I'm starting to feel all warm and fuzzy again.

And anytime you need another candy treat you just let me know.

Yes I knew it too. It bites, but I guess that's what happens when we post every little detail about ourselves on any site. That's why you always need to be careful and anyone with young kids, also please let your kids know that what they write in their chat rooms and such, others across the country and learn more about them as well. Scary, huh?

Whats scary is that the new FRT (face recognition technology) programs that they use in Vegas are starting to become more mainstream. Imagine uploading a photo for a search in google....thats why member photo's should be respected more.

OMFG- I plugged in my screen name that I use here.. and of course ALL of my blogs show up and so does everyone else's blogs that I have posted under. Well at least no one off this site knows my screen name. And if they did, I haven't psoted anything that I wouldn't want others to see or pictures that I am afraid of.

What about all those nasty pictures you e-mailed me....oh sorry I wasn't supposed to talk about those.

Even some of my old handles showed up. I deleted those. Some were not even me, different state, etc. Its scary. Scared me!!!! Seems like we could write someone and have them remove it from google search?
