Perhaps this isn't news to anyone else, but I found this Web site today and was surprised at how much information it gave me.
It's called Pipl (prounced 'people'). You can use it to search for anyone.
I searched my name...holy crap, Batman...there's a lot of stuff out there. It listed my Facebook page, my MySpace page, anytime my name was mentioned in a local blog or newspaper. So yeah, pretty much EVERYTHING is out there.
Sites like these are why I couldn't quite understand all the hubbub about the whole TOS changes at Facebook. There isn't much about us that is "private" anymore -- the Internet has made certain of that. People, your names are all over the Web. Don't believe me? Google yourself. You'll see. Hell, I can Google my maiden name and still find the articles I wrote as a reporter 15 years ago.
And here's an interesting tidbit: I only found this Web site because one of my coworkers was telling me that her husband's company uses it to search potential job candidates. Yeah. Just one more reason why your Facebook page settings should be set to PRIVATE. Because even though Pipl listed my FB page, it was listed as private and one has to 'friend' me in order to see it.
Big Brother is watching friends....but I don't know that there's much we can do about it.
