With the ever expanding world of blogging and computing in general
it's getting harder to keep track of ones identity.
This is not one of those scaremongering posts,
just a few friendly reccomendations,
nothing too deep I'm just not that savvy.
Do you ever search your blog/flickr name in google/yahoo?
Well I do, generally to see what pops up
no hedonism involved truly!
So the other day I did a search and found three websites that were showing photos
linked from my flickr account with my name and details...
I understand that they are just another way of displaying your photos to the world,
I'm just not sure I like the idea of my photos being shared by a random website
I have not signed up for.
If they are harmless then fair enough,
I just have a suspicious nature.
Two that I remember were flickriver and flickrflu.
An easy way to stop them showing your photos
is to tick the last two boxes in the privacy section on your flick account.
It may well turn out to be the future for sharing photos
I'd just like to be in control of my stuff
(as much as I can with a blog!)
Whilst we are on the subject of control
have you ever wondered whats been pinned from your blog?
(insert your blogname!)
I'm not naive of how the Internet works these days
I just like to have a little knowledge.
Checking your blog stats can often throw up an interesting source
and sometimes they are happy ones :O)
