|Auki asks Who is Jerry ?|
These are all keyword searches we have uncovered this month from people panicked about 'somone' called Jerry who knows too much apparently. But the reality is somewhat more of a giggle.
199 Jerry is the latest texting phenomenon, an SMS service craze simlar to information text service Bongo. How does Bongo work? - according to their FAQ "thanks to a number of intelligent human researchers and a very sophisticated software application with a huge database".
With the ever expanding use of social media services and shared personal information publicly available nowadays, society tends to forget that personal information is; in fact, not personal anymore once you have entered it in somewhere. It lives electronically potentially into perpetuity.
Whilst some of us are able to have a laugh and know that it is in fact just intended as a bit of fun, I can't help but noticed cases where people are dismayed or frightened by some of the information they receive from the 199Jerry "Trivia Service".
