It’s started: Google spidering of Facebook pages

I was doing a search earlier for my name on Google (did I ever mention I’m quite vain?) when I saw it.

The first link, as always, was my Web site, The next, a page with some old articles I wrote when I interned at The Forward in New York.

The third result, however, I’d never seen before. It was my old Facebook profile page from when I was a graduate student at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism.

I knew that Facebook planned to do this awhile back, but I don’t think it really hit me until I actually saw my name and profile in Google’s listings.

Now where’s that privacy setting…?
