Just on a lark, I typed my last name into Google images. Up popped an image I had uploaded to one of those free sites. My name was no where on the
website or the image and the only way I can connect my last name to the site is from the registration. How can Google pull up an image from
registration information. Isn't this private?
When you registered on one of those "free" sites you accepted an agreement in fine print that gives away everything you give them. It is a
conspiracy between Google, Facebook, the CIA and all the other data miners. You thought there were free things?
Does the site list your name anywhere on a "profile" page? It could be anything like that. Anywhere the text of your name shows up on the same
page as the picture. Google's spiders will index them together.
I had to register for it using my email address, ( which has my last name in my addy) but my last name is not used anywhere on the site. So, they
pulled up an image from a site from the email addy that I registered with? Wow...

You can try and make an online personality that does not have any information about you but one little screw up and the infobots have you. They can
even connect you by facial recognition software, even if they don't know your name.
