How often do you search things on the internet?
What does your browser history look like?
A few months ago one of my blog friends wrote about pulling up there history and looking at the last ten things they searched. I thought this was an interesting idea, so I jotted it down. Then I watched the HBO show “The Undoing” and watched an episode where the lawyer says that they looked at the profiles and search history of the perspective jurors.
I have no idea about the legality of this, or if it actually does happen…but would it surprise you if people did look up your search history to see what kind of person you are?
So I looked at my browser, and these are the last 40ish searches:
- masala definition
- Masala powder
- specialty cakes- Veneiro’s
- Windmill cake
- wirelessly connect camera to computer troubleshoot
- MNR schedule
- Prince Tea House
- Segumo Salumeria
- Faiccos Italian Specialties
- Hallmark Movies mystery schedule
- the next 20 items were all related to different kinds of reading exam tests
- the next 7 items were all restaurants
- ATT girl says she’s shamed over body image
- Film Forum
If you look at my history, what does it say about me?
What kind of person am I?
Do you think this is a good indication of what type of person I am?
How would you describe me based on my search history?
Do you want me on your jury?
Do you want to be my friend?
Would you be interested in dating me?
After you read this post, and after you delete your browsing history, are you going to actively think about what you mindlessly type into the little browser bar?
How much googling do we need in our lives?
What’s the difference between the practical, like finding train schedules and movie times versus the sheer human interest, like why are people body shaming the actress on the commercial?
Does google make our lives better and easier, or does it just give us more to be distracted by?
On a scale on 1-10, how does google factor into your life? Does is make you better or worse?
