Tell me what your feeds are…

And Ill tell you who you are. Do you share your RSS aggregator account? Do you impose self-censorship when bookmarking on del.icio.us?

I dont share my RSS feeds and I limit my del.icio.us bookmarks to non-prurient interests. However, I found out while reviewing my del.icio.us bookmarks that I wasnt as careful when I started my account with the social bookmarking service. (Dont bother searching, I already deleted the bookmarks.)

For a more candid appraisal of a person, try searching for his or her del.icio.us account or RSS aggregator public feed and you can get an idea of his or her interest, work and (gasp) fetish. Dont just google for personal information look for his or her public RSS aggregator and bookmarking accounts. Who knows? – That guy youre dating may have bookmarks in his del.icio.us or Furl accounts that point to sites of weird sexual fetishes.
