Social Networks:

Every Social Network, such as Facebook, Myspace and Google Plus, offers privacy settings to help you protect your data.  Using your settings helps protect your images, your email, and your location as well as your family and friends.  We STRONGLY urge you to use these settings to the fullest extent.

Social networks are used to connect with friends and family.  If you wish to reconnect with people, it is best if you use a paid service such as MyLife and  If you desire to allow people to contact you on a Social Network you can easily create a gmail email account which you can post to your public information for people to contact you.

(NEVER click on a link sent to you by anyone, even if you know them.  This is how your email account gets hijacked.  This is how you can get a computer virus.  If it comes from the account of someone you know, create a new message and ask them if they have sent that link to you.  AOL users can attest to the frequency of account hijacks sending mass emails to all their freinds.)

Locating and Deleting your Online Data:

There is some data that is difficult to remove.  This data consists of Criminal background, Property Records, etc.  This data is only reliable coming from a source that users must pay for.  An excellent source for Data Deletion can be found here:

Other data, such as your full name, your residence, your phone number and the names of individuals you are affiliated with can easily be located.  Simply do a Google search of your name.  This will provide you with pages such as Spokeo,, etc.  You may go the site and request the data be removed.  Certain sites ask that you pay a fee for the removal service.  It is important to keep your data off the internet. All a predator needs is your name and state to find you.  Listing your high school/employment also helps them to gain access to your data.  Keep it private.


Even a User Name can be tracked.
