I’ve been egosurfing since the early days (not sure if I actually invented the word). It means that you regularly check your online presence. Google was the best and only tool to do that. I was very excited to find out that when you spell my name wrong at Google, you’re asked if you didn’t mean ‘Krijn Schuurman’🙂
Anyway, a new service has launched by Boris Veldhuijzen Van Zanten and his compagnion: Preople. This is meant to be used to check your name, or someone else’s of course. It’s not clear what the outcome of the calculation means, except that higher is better, I presume. Naturally they act misterious about the mechanism, just like Google does.
By the way, my score (514) is way higher than Boris’s… 🙂
