Part 2 – Google yourself
When I Google myself using my First and Last name this is what shows up
There is no sign of me anywhere except for one link that connects me to my twitter account. Apart from that none of the links are connected to me in anyways. They are all related to a Telagu (Indian) actress of inappropriate movie. I am really upset with the results but cannot blame anyone as it is all because of my narrow perspective about internet and my privacy setting on my social networking site. This is a reason that I don’t have any online identity so far.
Next I try to Google myself using “Swati Dixit, Regina” to see if the results differ this time and this is what shows up
The results were totally different this time. My twitter account comes to be on the top and I am happy with this because this is sort of my professional account and reflect me in every way. The next link is my “Bloggy Mom” account which is a Social networking site for mothers. I am pretty surprised to see this because I had closed this account long back.
I am really enjoying Googling myself so I decide to give it one more try, but this time I Googled using “swati2326” (my username for almost all the sites). I am amazed to see the result this time
My twitter account showed up 🙂
In future I would like to see me connected to more educational sites that would define me as an Educator, reflecting my online identity. I would also like to see the link to my classroom blog which I plan to start when I start teaching and educational articles that I may end up writing (No one knows I may do that!!)
Part 3 – This is me!
