New World Notes: Woman Stalked & Harrassed in Real Life By Men Who Did Reverse Image Search on Her Second Life Avatar

I recently received a fairly urgent e-mail from a young woman I profiled nearly a decade ago, who told me the post I had wrote about her had inadvertently caused considerable stress — for herself, and potentially, for people close to her. The post was a mixed reality profile, containing a screenshot of her Second Life avatar alongside a photo of her in real life, and therein was the problem: “I’ve come across certain people on SL who used a reverse image search on the pictures in your blog to find out my RL information,” she told me, “so when possible, I’d like to make that a bit harder for them.” (Not the images above, by the way.)
