This week’s play activity involved me doing a google search on my name, the results of which are attached. I decided to search under “Deb* Fuller” so it would include Deb, Deborah and Debbie, all of which I am known by. The only results on the first page which linked to me were the Facebook and LinkedIn sections, which I needed to click on again to find myself top of both lists, although I think it was because I was searching on my laptop, which has both profiles saved on it. It was interesting to see the top search result on Google was a professor in AIDS research, followed by a boudoir photographer, both from North America, so obviously not me. I think because my name is very common it can be difficult to find me on a Google search, even when I narrowed it down to Brisbane, I got similar results.
I am also very aware of what I post online in order to protect my privacy, whilst still projecting my personality.
