Who Aren’t You . . . 3

. . . when you’re not yourself?

If you don’t stake out your social media territory, someone else will.

That’s the new reality reflected in a lawsuit filed Thursday in Pittsburgh’s federal court by a foundation head against the networking firm LinkedIn Corp.

Rick D. Senft, president and CEO of the Passavant Memorial Home Foundation, wants to know who put his name, personal cell phone and personal email on the popular site — and so far, LinkedIn won’t tell him.

    Yeah, a couple wise guys tried to use my nickname on Facebook for some mileage. Didn’t work for them. Too entrenched in Google — I own it by weight of search. One DJ at a radio station used it for his show along with an image from one of my records. He’s dead now. But I had nothing to do with it.

    One wonders, what’s the point?

    Oh, yeah.  Random dumb.

    That’s it. An anonymoid threatened me once: “I’ll make a Facebook page on you!” Woo, that was scary.
