There's a site called Spokeo.com that's a new online USA phone book with real personal information. Everything from pictures you've posted on FB or online, your credit score, home value, income, age, etc. Although, some info may not be accurate at all.
But go ahead, type in your name. You're lucky if you cant be found, but try typing in your email, or your friend's name or email. You'd be surprised of what you can find.
I typed in my mother's name and Google map street view popped up, showing me my damn street.
