Googling Dates On The Left Coast

from the this-sounds-mighty-familiar dept

About a month ago I posted a story from the NY Observer about using Google to do background checks on someone you were dating. Today, I read an article in the LA Times that reads remarkably similar to that first one. Apparently, people on each coast use Google in the same manner. Some people indicated that they didn’t believe the story in the NY Observer since the people seemed to have lives that were way too interesting. The same can be said for things like the “successful screenwriter” in the LA Times version.
