A lot of people are having difficulty controlling their online brand presence. If you Google your name, are you happy with the results?
There are a number of sites that you’re already on if you’re reading this: Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
Here is a list of the other profiles that you should claim if you want more control over your online identity:
Spoke – a popular people search engine
Google Profiles – the hub for your Google identity
Squidoo – a reference site created by Seth Godin
SlideShare – share your PowerPoint presentations
Delicious – the ultimate social bookmarking site
Fast Company – everyone can have a profile on this top media site
VisualCV – take your resume to the next level with multimedia
Make sure you use your full name when you register these accounts without a “.,-” – socialnetwork.com/fullname.
Final word: The more social profiles you create, the more power you have over perception.
