Do you 'Google' it?

Posted by: Jaime Faulkner on Monday, August 29, 2011 at 2:24:17 pm

Did you know the Merriam-Webster dictionary now references google as a verb?

Definition of GOOGLE
transitive verb:  to use the Google search engine to obtain information about (as a person) on the World Wide Web

 

I find this interesting because I google everything! I have a BlackBerry, so it makes it easier for me to google things I'd never think to google. Yesterday I was having lunch at a local restaurant. A song came on the restaurant's satellite station that was playing as background music. Two people at my table were having a friendly debate about who sang the song and what decade it was released. Not being a music connoisseur, I was clueless of the answer. So what did I do? I grabbed my phone and it became a race for me to identify the correct answer by googling it before the debate was over. (For those that have to know, I did find the answer and could affirm the one individual who was arguing that Robert Palmer sang "Bad Case of Loving You".)

The reason why googling is so successful is that you can find everything you could ever want to know, just by searching a few words. But let me ask, how accurate are the results? To be honest, they are pretty accurate, especially on simple things. But have you ever thought about googling your financial questions?

As I mentioned, I google just about everything. But when it comes to my money, I want to be sure I'm getting 100% accurate information. Sometimes I prefer to talk to someone face-to-face. And more often than not, I don't want to share personal financial questions unless it's with someone I trust. I have worked hard for my money and I want to be sure the answers I receive are customized to me and my situation. But there are many times I want to research options and give myself time to ponder before I take time to meet with someone. Sometimes, I want to be educated and have an idea of what I want or need before someone tells me.

Are you like me? Do you want to take time to research options and advice before you're ready to take the next step?
