I am the only user of my computer and I have the history turned off, so I am not really worried about that. I am an interesting individual to my friends and I could really see them trying to figure out what I do on the web. So what I am asking here is there a way that they can find out out the embarrassing things I look at on the computer, without having direct contact with my computer, and if so what can I do to safeguard my internet privacy. Or am I just being paranoid? Well don't answer that, I know I am paranoid[lol] How about on Yahoo Answers, I have a hidden profile, but what about my contacts, can they see the questions I ask, because I think they see my profile name when I am instant messaging with them or am I wrong. Also a facebook question, I do not have a facebook account but would like to create one to see what is being said about me on there. What are your thoughts on this, could I create an account without my real name, or use my real name and can I keep my profile private, can I even research what has been said about me without becoming someones facebook friend. Also would like to see if there are pictures of me on facebook. I am new to technology so please help me with what you know. Thank you in advance.
