Question

How to get pictures of myself off of the Internet?

Hello! I'm not sure if this is the right place to come, but if anyone has any answers I would greatly appreciate it! I have an embarrassing pre-weight loss photo that keeps coming up when I search my old Instagram username up. It comes up under "shopsyspace.com", which claims that it uses Instagram's API to produce results. I've tried e-mailing them with the old username and hashtag that brings up the photo so that they can delete it from their site, but haven't received a response. Any ideas about what I can do? Is there any way that I can delete it? I can't get back to the old Instagram account, so deleting the hashtag and picture is impossible. I just shut down the account entirely. Thank you in advance!

Ugh, the Internet.

Ahh, very true. Luckily it doesn't seem like a popular website, and maybe it will be reindexed after some time? I mean, I deleted the account several months ago. I'm hoping Sad. Thank you for your answer!

Maybe.

There now so many internet caches that I can't know them all. Google caches old versions, the Waybackmachine does more and that's just the two I know off the top of my head.

While my advice is to not post a lot to the web, I know folk love to do so. Your best way to keep photos off the web is to never put them there (sorry for the obvious here.)

See the https://www.google.com/#q=wayback+machine if you want to see if it nabbed a copy.

Good advice!

That makes sense. No, it's true! I haven't posted anything in quite a long time, and I'm currently in the process of deleting most traces of myself online (just to look more professional and organized). I shouldn't have posted anything to begin with. Teenage me would object, but I regret it now, haha. Thank you for the advice!
