I ask and bat my eyelashes even though I’m home blogging & tweeting in tights and a snuggy.
Responds with full name…which leads to a T.G.I.F. search, twitter, google, internet, facebook. I’m the the jerk cause I don’t do it right after popping the question,. Only mildly curious anyways but mostly easily distracted and doing my own thing.
First, search.twitter.com. No results, uses a branded twitter name so makes sense. Second engine, Google search, first result linkedin followed by FB and a couple other things. Third, Internet search, browsing any other site other than Twitter, Google or Facebook. I check linkedin, history of pretty good jobs, nothing crazy and very professional. This is a good thing.
Last check is FB, we’ve got about a dozen common friends. I know this social circle. Friendship requested. The internet makes the world a small place. With just a name you can learn so much.
This week I read a tweet that said if someone is not found on Google or FB, they’re probably a serial killer. Exaggerated yes, (I hope) but really now, someone with NO DIGITAL footprint at all? Makes me wonder if we could ever be friends.
