Stop Hanging Out Online
Before you consider disappearing from the material world, first consider retreating from the virtual world. Every pic you've ever "Liked," every story about a cat playing the piano you've ever shared, every turnip you ever planted in Farmville -- every move you make online is just one more way Big Brother can trace you. According to How to Disappear by Frank Ahearn, particular trouble spots for leaving big impressions include WordPress, YouTube, Twitter and Reddit. If you're a regular commenter in an online community, your mark has been left there and may be difficult to erase.
