The other day, I found myself googling one of the people in my community. I'd visited the website of a local business to get the phone number and, while I was waiting for the call to go through, saw the full name of one of the delightful employees. So I started Googling.
I've done this before. Kind of a lot.
I get fascinated with someone - for any number of reasons - and it just isn't socially acceptable to start interviewing people with whom you have only a passing acquaintance, you know? So . . . Google.
Two things about this:
- I've been surprised by who is easy to google and, conversely, how many folks are really hard to find on the internet. Sometimes it's just a common name, but more often it seems like a lot of people just don't show up on the web and that kind of fascinates me.
- It occurred to me to wonder, in my most recent bout of "research," how normal this is. Do YOU do this kind of Googling?
Then I thought, I can ask people! You! I can ask YOU! But asking for your response in the comments - especially about something like this that might feel embarrassing to have on the record - seemed like not a great way to find out. So . . . (drum roll) . . . I made a SURVEY!! It's short - only six multiple choice questions - and in a few weeks, I'll share the results. HERE IS THE LINK!
FUN, right? Or is this just another way that I'm weird . . . ? You can leave your answer to that question in the comments, no survey required. ;)
