Ever regret posting something to the Internet?

Worried that your Internet antics may catch up on you in later life?

May be they have done already!

Well, according to the BBC News website, you could get in touch with what has been terms an "online reputation manager" - in other words, someone you can employ to clean up your record on the web.

Apparently a small range of firms have set themselves up to "monitor what is written about clients and drown out unwanted comments or photographs by creating or sourcing a barrage of positive Google-friendly content."

Sound a bit extreme to me, but could be worth it if you have a lot to lose from having a dodgy "netrep."
