Review: Reputation.com

Very rarely information will disappear from the internet. This is why you see all of the warnings not to post anything anywhere online that you would not want certain individuals or entities to see.

Now, there are ways to scrub information from the web, but it is a daunting process, one most people are ill-equipped to handle.

This is where REPUTATION.COM comes in.

They are experts when it comes to removing personal information from the internet!

The company believes that protecting your personal info is very important, because stalkers and thieves can use that information to help them harass or endanger your family members.

The website explains why PRIVACY should be your #1 concern when you're on the Internet - and how you can deal with the "frightening" amount of personal information online that exists and may strtech beyond YOU to include your loved ones, business associates and romantic interests!

REPUTATION.COM trolls the net looking for your info, and then follows the proper protocols to REMOVE it!

Here's an interesting case, taken from a report published last year in the Albany Times Union newspaper...

It concerned a fellow who could have used a friend like REPUTATION.COM, because he has possibly made other uninformed decisions regarding posting information on social media.

Mr. Steve Valente and his facebook pictures apparently "caused a stir" in the community. "I was in college then and I've grown up a lot since then," Valente, 23, told the newspaper. He said most of the pictures were from his freshman or sophomore years at the university. "I didn't feel it was appropriate to go back and edit my postings," Valente said.

Little did he know, even if he "edited" those postings, they would continue to exist in the digital realm!

Anything put online will follow a person forever, said Penny Perkins, a communications professor at The Sage Colleges, who teaches about social networking.

"This is your personal brand, your reputation," Perkins said. "I wouldn't post anything I wouldn't be happy to see on a billboard on 787."

Many people, she said, don't understand that Internet postings are always out there. She pointed to deleted items on such sites as www.archives.org, which tracks web postings since 1995.

Again, look to REPUTATION.COM ::: The Net CAN indeed be "wiped clean" !

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
