I have my friends lists hidden on social networking sites like Google+ so that they aren't viewable on my profile page. In addition, my profile is set so that only friends can view my profile.
However, a recent web search of my name revealed that my name comes up in Google searches under OTHER friends' lists. Why does Google reveal friends lists??? It is odd. Is there any way to prevent this?
How can I keep my online info. private? I would prefer that zero social networking stuff shows up in Google searches.
