Googling myself

So I went online and googled my name to see what the vast sea of the interwebs has to show me about myself. I was hoping to see previous work show up that I had uploaded online for school projects in the past as well as possibly some accurate facebook information. Turns out none of this came up! Not even on the second page! It was a little disheartening to see how many other Alejandro Baez’s exist in this world. I found this a little weird being that all the sites I go on, for example YouTube, is linked to my google plus profile under my real name and still did not show up. Instead I saw a bunch of mugshots of guys from Mexico. Never knew my first name was a predominantly Mexican name. I also came across various Twitter handles with my name in them. I do also have a twitter but it is under a completely different handle that does not pertain to my name at all. This made me realize that this was all done on purpose and I just forgot I had done it. About 6 months ago the whole NSA situation got me real paranoid, and in turn I decided to go on all my social networks and strip as much personal information off of them as possible. I know realize that if I want to make anywhere in this business, a strong social presence is needed. Therefore I began to populate my vimeo, twitter, and facebook with some real info.
