Beware What You Like & Contest

In the security info that Brazil in My Eyes and I share, there is a portion dedicated to protecting your online presence. It’s a good idea to Google yourself and see what shows up. This morning, I did just that. Nothing surprising. But then I decided to click on “images” to see what photos are associated with my name.

There were some pictures I know are public images. However, not so far down I came across a photo of a girl on the beach in an embarrassing, awkward and kind of disgusting situation. If one didn’t know better, one could assume the girl in the picture is me. In one click I assessed what happened. I had “liked” a public photo posted on Facebook by one of my favorite fellow bloggers at some point in time.

So the moral to this story is be aware that if you like a photo, it could come up if someone does a search for you.

The first one to guess, in the comments of this post, which Brazil blogger posted the funny, yet offensive photo I liked wins a copy of my book, American Exbrat in Sáo Paulo (if you already have a copy, I’ll gift it to the person of your choice). FYI – there is a clue in the tags of this post…

Happy guessing!

  1. A Taste of Brazil says:

    Rachel’s Rantings in Rio is my guess!

  2. Mallory says:

    “embarrassing, awkward and kind of disgusting ” ???? der. most likely Rachel :P hahahahahahahhahaha

  3. Alex says:

    Definitely Rachel, couldn’t be anyone else really :P

  4. I agree with the above, Mrs. Rant for sure, love her blog and yours. ;)
    Interesting info, I’d never have thought about that, I press like a lot on all sorts of nonsense. *sigh*

  5. Reblogged this on born again brazilian and commented:

    And the winner is… Mallory from The Salty Cod and A Taste of Brazil who delivered the correct answer first within seconds of each other. (Please send me an email and let me know if you want to receive the book or if you want to gift it to someone else). The correct answer was Rachel’s Rantings in Rio (http://rachelsrantings.com). In fact, the guesses were unanimously Rachel… which mean Rachel is officially the Howard Stern of Brazil blogging. Not that you should be discouraged from “liking” her photos because the pics are often extremely entertaining. But just be aware of how your choices may stay attached to you.

  6. I choose to be extremely complimented by the google search, the contest, and the fact that you all guessed me :)

  7. Ah as Ned Nederlander once said “Infamous, to be more than famous”. Genius.
