UnGoogle Your Life 1. Google yourself. Note what appears. 2. Approach your friends about removing your information from their sites. 3. Change your Facebook privacy settings so they are not set to “Everybody.” 4. Monitor your LinkedIn public profile settings. 5. Add robots.txt to any site you host and submit a site removal request to Google. 6. Untag yourself from photos and only use your last name on photo sites like Flickr. 7. Be careful what you share and post. Always be aware of your social networking privacy settings.
