Spokeo: How to Keep Your Personal Information Personal

You may want to do a search of yourself on Spokeo.com.  It is a website that collects information from other websites and posts it for anyone who is interested.   It includes demographic information, social networks, phone directories, government censuses, property values, etc.  They used to provide this information for free to anyone who was looking for it, but now have a small fee for monthly access.  
You can, however, be removed from the site.  Simply search your name, find & copy the URL of your page, then go to the bottom right corner of the page and click on the Privacy button to remove yourself.
