As a reminder, I founded JobsDirectUSA.com in 2008 as a direct result of my own job loss. JobsDirectUSA is a national workforce organization which connects workers throughout the United States with hiring companies and jobs both online and off. To date, JobsDirectUSA has over 100,000+ active members in its FREE community. JobsDirectUSA has a zeo-tolerance policy with sharing the information of it’s members to third-party affiliates.
I was recently made aware that there’s a new online site called Spokeo.com and discovered that it had all my personal information listed such as: pictures posted on Facebook & the web, approx credit score, home value and address (with a photo!), income, age.
I went to the website and was amazed at what I found and was readily available to the public. Literally, it had a picture of my house, home address, phone number, wife’s name, marital status, income and even the # of children in my household. If this would ‘freak’ you out, like it did me, then go-to this website now and remove yourself : http://www.spokeo.com.
Like many of us, I’ve been on sites such as MySpace and Facebook for several years now. What I came to discover is that Spokeo.com is a search engine specialized in aggregating and organizing vast quantities of people-related information from a large variety of public sources including social networking sites. The public data is amassed with lightning speed, and presented almost instantly in an integrated, coherent, and easy-to-follow format — basically if you’re reading this right now chances are that you can be found on Spokeo.com
Now if you are presently seeking employment, or if you already have a job, do you feel comfortable knowing that your present or future employer has this much knowledge about you?
As a result, we have recently discovered a feature-rich social network that respects AND protects the privacy of its members; then blends in a focus on helping others by creating financial opportunity for every member of the community. They don’t let search engines crawl the site, AND they don’t sell any of our information. They don’t even allow Ads, because Ads can have stuff like spyware, malware and tracking software. Instead they charge $10 a month, but it’s worth it to know my information is kept private and is not for sale along with that of my network.
The name of the company is Crazygood and to motivate everyone to invite their friends, they share half of everyone’s $10 membership fee with the members who help them build this safe privacy-protected community. So basically, if you refer your friends and your existing social network, you could more than cover your $10 a month. Plus, they give away 10% of all their revenues to charities that the community recommends. They call it Social-Minded Social Networking!
We realize this may not be for everyone but this is an added benefit for JobsDirectUSA members. Evidently, the 500,000,000 of us sharing our likes/dislikes, talking about where we go and what we do-is really big business. Cut the ties and put your privacy first.
Crazygood has Groups, similar to those found on LinkedIn, that will allow you to add and communicate with others interested in whatever you are promoting, so there’s a new potential channel to market in the long run only to people who are really interested. Sure it’s a paid site but it’s just $10 to secure and maintain your privacy and provide you with an opportunity to create an additional income stream. The other free sites don’t care because, well, as they’re all so fond of saying–” that’s what you get for free!”
