Do you Google yourself?
Lots of people do these days, especially to monitor their "personal brand."
I Google myself. I’m what you might call an egosurfer
—or a Robert Downey, Jr.
What kind of self-Googler are you?
The Robert Downey, Jr.:
You Google yourself—and you're proud of it.
During Newsweek’s Oscar roundtable in 2009
, Iron Man admitted: “Oh, I love all that sh**, personally. Sorry. I just love it.” And by sh**, he means Googling himself.
The Brad Pitt:
You never, ever Google yourself. Never.
During the same Oscar roundtable, the actor emphatically stated that he does not Google himself.
The Maureen Dowd:
You Googled yourself once, got creeped out, and won't do it again.
In the latest issue of Newsweek
, New York Times
columnist Maureen Dowd claims that during the Clinton presidency a friend Googled her and discovered a fake picture of her performing a sexual act on the Commander in Chief. “So that cured me of Googling myself,” she says.
The Anne Hathaway:
You don't Google yourself—OK, fine, you do. Sometimes. But, it’s not, like, a problem or anything.
Back to the Newsweek
roundtable, Hathaway said, “No,” when asked if she Google’s herself, but her guilty conscience gets the best of her and she later fessed up.
The Marge Simpson:
You think Googling yourself is a euphemism fo
r—well—for something else entirely.
