SNGF: Spokeo

Posted by on September 24, 2011

Randy Seaver at Genea-musings hosts a round of Saturday Night Genealogy Fun every, yes, you guessed it, Saturday night. Be very afraid. Your local genealogists are ganging up and prowling the night hours, especially on the weekend. Sometimes this is our only opportunity to get some good, solid work done.

This is my first time reporting my participation.  This week it is What does Spokeo know about you? His instructions are:

1)  Go to Spokeo - www.spokeo.com and put in your name (or any name).  

In this case, I used my real name, not “Geeky Texan.” It certainly found me.  To my front door. It has a picture of my house to prove it. I entered my city when I first searched. But by entering my name and “Texas” it gets 15 results in the large metro area in which I live.

2)  See what Spokeo says about you.  Is it accurate?  

Overall, it is more or less correct.  However, I’m now a Scorpio instead of Sagittarius. I don’t know if my birthdate changed or if the stars re-aligned…. Overall, it’s decidedly creepy as all sites like this are.

3)  Share what you want to share with us in a blog post, in a comment to this blog post, or in a status or comment on Facebook, or in a Stream post on Google Plus.

you’re lookin’ at it
