Would You Use a Service to Clean Up Your Online Reputation?

Would You Use an Online Reputation Service?

Oh, the joys of living your life online. Any indiscretions of your past have the ability to affect you when you least expect it.

If you're finding it hard to keep your online reputation controversy-free, there's many a service that will wipe the Internet clean of your deeds — for a fee. Sites like Reputation.com will patrol the web and help move more positive portrayals of your personality up the Google search, remove your name and information from certain people search sites, and otherwise monitor your online image for anything from a few dollars a month to hundreds of dollars a year.

We all know we should be prudent by what gets tagged or put up online in our name, but it seems like subscribing to a reputation service would be a last resort for someone (or some business) who's been severely affected by a negative online persona. But since story after story has circulated of those who didn't get the job — or got fired from it — after an unfortunate Facebook picture, it may mean that many of our online lives are in need of some clean up.

What do you think? Would you subscribe to one of these services?

I just recently knew that such a service exists because my sister got hired for a online cleaning reputation company. I personally think it's a good idea for businesses that rely on the Internet to make business. Nowadays, it's important to have an online persona. But for me personally? I don't think I'd need it. It's not that hard to make your stuff private and be cautious about what you upload online.
