An email got me thinking the other day about a missionary in China’s presence on the internet. So I did a quick survey on google to see how easily you could find information about someone IF someone was looking for it.
I simply typed the following “First & Last Name China” in the search bar on google. Out of the 20 different men’s names that I entered followed by the word “China”, 17 of those returned results on the first page about that person being a missionary in China. 3 of the names didn’t return results on the first page or the first ten listings.
The men’s names represented a variety of people, ministry, background, and time in China. Of course, I won’t post the names and actual results of the survey because then I wouldn’t have any friends left and get lots of hate mail.
I will just state what I found from my little survey and let you draw your own conclusions.
Note: Chinese people don’t really use google.
