Confession Time: Have You Googled Any of Your Exes?

Today's questionable relationship move: the periodic Googling of the ex. Everyone does it, right? Uh, maybe not: According to a new Pew Internet & American Life Project survey, 24 percent of Internet users say they've searched for information about their ex online (that's compared to the 11 percent of people who said they did in 2005). Even more people who use social networking sites—31 percent—admit to having used them to check up on an ex. Do those numbers seem shockingly low to anyone else? We're willing to bet they're actually a lot higher, particularly among adults in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. Tell us the truth—are you an ex Googler?


  • Yes, I do it all the time!
  • No, I prefer to leave the past in the past.
  • I've done it before—and regretted it—so I try not to anymore.
