Do You Erase Old Profiles?

Do You Keep Old Profiles Online?

Nothing to hide here: from time to time I like to Google myself, just to see what comes up. After all, you never know who's going to search for you from a potential boss to a potential date. Even Kristen Stewart admits to self-Googling, as do a few other celebs.

This time, though, I came across one of my outdated social networking profiles that I'd last looked at in 2005. Until now, I'd completely forgotten about it, but there it was, online for everyone to see! I quickly deleted the, um, evidence and then did a quick search to find any remaining profiles I may have forgotten about.

If you decide to stop using a site, do you actively delete your profile? Or do you just stop using it and hope it sort of disappears into the abyss?
