Googling yourself doubles in popularity
December 17, 2007
So Pew and American Internet Life says that the number of U.S. users who have Googled themselves has doubled from 22% to 47% since 2002.
No surprise as far as I’m concerned, with the rise of social networking and all the scare stories of identity theft I’m surprised it’s not a lot higher than that. Give it another year or so and I reckon it will be nearer to 80% as the concept of Self Pr Online becomes one that everyone is aware of.
