Sometimes, I search names of people I know on Internet. I discover things they did not tell me or don't want to tell. I discovered the political views of people I know. They have never talked about politics when they see me. People easily open their mind on Internet and they are more careful in real life.

Yes, I've discovered some amazing things about some people. One person from blurtit called me a liar, backstabber and a troublemaker. I usually don't bother with searching for their names online but a lady friend told me about that and I thought we were friends. Never know what you're going to find out!

Yes.  For example, a doctor that I thought highly of suddenly turned over his practice to another doctor and retired.  About a year later, I found out on the internet that he had lost his license to practice medicine as a result of a malpractice suit.

Yes, sometimes, you can discover things about people or celebrities you know (or heard a lot of), or think to know, who seem to be quite the opposite of their image.

And who doesn't wish to show a good image, even if it is, more or less artificially enhanced?


What's in Internet might not always be true, and propaganda or gossip can distort realities.
