    I’m still a bit apprehensive about GProfiles.

    On the one hand, GProfiles is great for all of the reasons that you mentioned.

    On the other hand, there are significant privacy, identity-theft, and possible stalker issues. I started using pseudonyms years ago, and I don’t think I’ll be changing this habit any time soon. Too much of my personal information can already be easily located using google, as my name is fairly unique (“AJ” is not my real name :-).

    Though I’ve chronicled the many ways in which I failed at getting Dandelife to fly, one of the things it did really well was increase one’s visibility in name searches. But then again, blogging by any other name would smell as sweet (to Google, that is). Good post, Gina. Thanks for sharing.

    I get ‘Your profile is currently blocked because it was found to contain content (text, images, or other items) that go against our Community Standards’. Then it asks me to submit for reconsideration, but that link goes to a server error. Clearly I’m a terrorist and never even realised it. :/

    If the profile results show up at the bottom, how much good does it actually do me? If people search for my name (which is not very common, and most things on the first page are actually about me) they’ll end up on my flickr page and blog before they get to my profile. I’m not saying this is a problem, but doesn’t it defeat the purpose?
