You can still use the Internet, post on comments and erase history weekly.

I'm not on facebook (probably the only person in my grade).
And i sometimes google my name, just to find that there's almost nothing to be found about me =)

Also, don't give your real name if you do something on the internet, then it's harder to find you.
