A get to know you ice breaker that allows partners to google each other.  Instead of googling yourself, when your computer may provide different results, pair up with someone you don't know well and google them.  What did you find about them?


  1. Pair up with someone you don't know.  Eye contact buddy.
  2. Tell them your name, where you live or school you work at.  
  3. Each person googles each other.
  4. Share results with each other.
  5. Then discuss your online presence.

I have used this a couple times with groups of people who don’t know each other. They are frequently surprised by the results!
