    Default Is your personal info safe?

    There's a site called spokeo.com that's a new online USA phone book w/personal information: everything from pics you've posted on FB or web, your approx credit score, address and home value, income, age. Remove yourself by searching your name, find the URL of your page, then go to the bottom right corner of the page and click on the Privacy button to remove yourself.

    Just thought I'd post this here because I think this is REALLY F'ed up. They had tons of my personal info up there and that's NOT cool.

    This is fucking creepy. There are arial photos of places I used to live, old phone numbers, blogs, just a bunch of personal stuff I'd rather not be out there. There was something on the Spokeo site that claimed you could find hidden pictures of people who are in your email address book. I tried deleting myself using the privacy settings, but I just keep getting an error saying it cant find the URL. Bullshit!

    Make sure once you find yourself(the little window with info in the middle of the screen), copy that url and paste it, maybe you hav e different "email addy". try an old one. Even after I removed myself. You can still find personal info through a phone number or address. It's freaking crazy!!!! I'm really pissed and trying to figure out how to contact everyone I've found info on.
