Can You Delete Your Online Presence?

Not really but this is a thorough explanation of what is involved if you want to give that a go.  Many lawyers believe that they can simply avoid the Internet and social networking altogether.  If they do that, they reason, they won’t have to worry about what is said about them online.

Wrong.  With many sites like Yelp and Avvo, lawyers are no longer able to hide.  The California State Bar makes its membership directory searchable through Google.  So unless you want to go through the expense and time of deleting much of your Internet information, you are stuck being visible.  Better to embrace the online world and make it work for you instead of passively letting it work against you.
