I’ve been doing the online dating. I know that is a privacy risk. My picture is on my profile, and I clearly state that I’m married and poly. I guess anyone on that dating site could run across my profile. But I live in a huge city – there are like 7 million people in Los Angeles. I was looking over profiles Monday night… I saw a guy who looked familiar. So I click on his profile (assuming that I had maybe looked at him before but forgotten).
I worked with him last semester.
Unless you have a paid account (which I don’t). This site lets other people see who has viewed their profile. He looked at mine this morning. I wonder if he recognized me… It feels really awkward. Like I learned something private about him that he didn’t willingly share.
Luckily, it’ll be ages before I work with him again (if I ever do). For once being an adjunct pays off.
