Googlen’ myself

While googling myself I came up with several interesting results.  I tried to google both “Nick” and “Nicholas”  Johns and it lead  me to over 40 linkedin profiles with my same name and from all over the world.  Locations varied form United Kingdom to the greater Pittsburgh area.  The google search also lead to many facebook profiles, including mine.  The search didn’t just bring up “nick johns” results, instead, it brought any combination of a name that included nick, nicholas, johns, or john. 

In addition to linkedin and facebook accounts, it brought up a a news article about a Nick Johns in Minnesota who died in a cliff jumping incident.  It was creepy to read the article and watch the news telecast reporting the death of Nick Johns and seeing the name printed on photographs of the deceased.

There was also a link to REVERBNATION with a musician named Nick Johns’s profile.  The profile had links you could click on to hear his music and look up his tour dates.  I always knew my name was common and  “googling” it confirmed this.
