Irreplacable, un-erasable me...

"How often do you Google yourself?"

Aside from the giggles that sentence can cause, there are some interesting issues here. The use of Google and Facebook and LinkedIn and other online tools to learn about people is a fact of life now. If you have never googled yourself, or your parents, or your kids, I'd love to know why. (And what you find when you do.)

I was recently SHOCKED that my own mother had googled herself! But perhaps I shouldn't have been.

So, in this new world of un-erasable me, is it any wonder that Google and Facebook raise new issues for therapists and their clients. Fascinating topic!


  1. Very interesting and about time it was addressed as an issue. I just taught my father how to google himself. He was relieved not to find anything awful!

  2. "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you"

    I think many forget is that what is said or posted on public domain is public domain.
    If you don't want it shared, don't share it!

  3. I have googled myself, my children etc simply to see what was publicly available about us (ie. current address etc). I was a bit surprised. In fact, I may just go google myself again :)
