I just googled myself and found a picture of me that is only in my personal photo

album! And it is a little risque' looking! It says it comes from Picasa albums so I checked my Picasa album online and that picture is not in there.

How do I get that thing off?????????

1. been awhile since I used Picasa but

I think there should be settings for each folder, whether to share or not.

4. Someone hacked into my computer because I didn't even upload this into Picasa on the web!

I wouldn't put a picture like that up there and now when I look around my albums I can't even find the picture. I might have to contact Google.

there anymore. Yeah! Thanks!

6. Something like this happened to me...

... when google brought most of the content of usenet to the masses. What had been a closed club for computer geeks was opened up for all the world to see.

About thirty years ago a girlfriend of mine took a full frontal photo of me standing in front of a lake. I was only wearing a hat.

That kind of naked I can deal with, I looked good! But naked intellectually, hell no! Some of the crap I wrote back then I hope never to see again; there are search terms I will NEVER enter into google for fear of dredging these tomes back up into the light.

It is funny though, the girlfriend who took the picture and posted it also wrote a lot of slash, some of it utterly cringeworthy. I google that sometimes and it makes me laugh to see multiple people claiming it as their own. I wonder if the same thing ever happened with that photo of me. Did some poor slob ever post that picture of me on some sketchy "dating" site, claiming I was him? Yes, sometimes I do wonder, but no, not enough to go looking for trouble.
