Corporations searching you on Google

This is truly an outrage. Businesses are searching people's names on Google and Myspace in order to determine whether they should hire you if you want a job from them.

People in my Philosophy class have speculated the day when Google becomes Big Brother, and this shows that the technology is being unfairly used to judge an employee's character, which means the Google Big Brother is upon us right now.

Likewise, due to the advertising of oneself on Myspace, people can judge somebody by their Profile. Also, Myspace friends lists could be a factor in the future concerning the judgement of character by corporations.

By all means, use Google, however it would be wise to put forward information about yourself which concerns criminal charges and other such issues towards an employer, in order to build trust with them.

However, it should be noted that people's comments online about you can be found on Google. This is why it is unjust to make judgements based on Google searches, as you could have the same name as a convicted drug lord from Malaysia.
