Google has gone ahead and released a new feature called “Me on the Web“. It is a “reputation” management tool accessible from the Google Dashboard, underneath the ‘Account’ details.
The tool is supposed to make it easier to set up Google Alerts, and suggests search terms you may wish to monitor, and provide links to resources that offer information on how to control what third-party info is posted about you on the web.
Google says an individual’s online identity is determined not only by what he/she posts, but also by what others post about him/her. It could be in the form of a mention in a blog post, a photo tag or a reply to a public status update.
As a matter of fact when someone searches for your name on a search engine like Google, the results that appear are a combination of information you’ve posted and information published by others.
Me on the Web simply shows you what links you have attached to your Google Profile, which you could also see by actually going to your Google Profile. This is all accessible from the Google Dashboard.
Behaving well online apart from real life is also going to become very important………
