    Spokeo and Your Privacy Issues

    New website Spokeo.com that gathers all of your personal data from many sources and puts it out there for anyone to view. Check out these videos and "opt out" if you don't like it.

    A lot of the info is wrong. However, my phone # was right.

    It also had me in the late 70's.

    Just remove yourself.

    Re:Spokeo and Your Privacy Issues

    Spokeos a great place to learn info about yourself that you didn't know was true. Like that fact that i'm in my upper 40s, a nurse, and my household worth is over a million bucks... I'm 18 and a student.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    Google can do the same thing. You would be amazed how much you can find from just a first and last name
