Googlegänger

I came across a new word this week in the newsmagazine Newsweek:

Googlegänger = another person with your name, whose search results are mixed with yours when you “google” yourself, or search for information about yourself on the Internet.

This new term comes from the German word “doppelgänger,” which is a double or another version of a person.

Canadian Pharmacists Association

The Canadian Pharmacists Association, previously known as the Canadian Pharmaceutical Association, was founded in 1907 in Toronto, Ontario. CPhA is the national voice of Pharmacists in Canada, representing pharmacists practising in various fields of pharmacy in community, hospital, academia, government and corporate settings, plus pharmacy students. Its mission is advancing the health and well-being of Canadians through excellence in pharmacist care. In 2014 CPhA adopted a new governance and membership model, most provincial pharmacy advocacy associations (PPAs) and select national pharmacist associations (NPAs) have become Organizational Members of CPhA. Their individual pharmacist and pharmacy student members are now CPhA Associates. The CPhA Board of Directors is made up of representatives appointed by each Organizational Member. The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the broad direction of the association.

    Although German is my native language, I didn’t know this word “Googlegänger”. Even more interesting is, that they chose in spite of the exotic umlaut in it. 🙂

    Yesterday I read this story http://www.radaronline.com/from-the-magazine/2007/09/google_fiction_evil_dangerous_surveillance_control_1.php. So we can satisfy that one famous company give us not only new words. Scroogled. Is it new word or secondary?
