This assignment is designed to help you identify what information about you exists that you may or may not have control over managing. Please take this seriously and complete the assignment as completely and with as much imagination as you can.

Initial Steps

Use several search engines to search your own name. You can also try Google’s facial recognition or image search tools too.

Be sure to keep track of which search engines yield which details.

Search also on Facebook, Myspace, Google+, Twitter, Instagram, or any social networking site. Log out of that site if you have an account. Search your name.

Note that you may have to try searching with your name in quotes or with your city or schools as well. Experiment with different configurations.
