Jonah is a tough man to sleuth. Currently, we follow each other on twitter and are Facebook friends, so I used incognito mode in Chrome. Incognito mode is an Internet browser setting that prevents browsing history from being stored. Normally, when you visit any web page, any text, pictures, and cookies required by the page are stored locally on your computer. Incognito mode forgets this data when you close the browser window, or doesn’t store it at all. This is an awesome feature for searching for flights, sleuthing yourself, or if you forget to log out of browsers. Ultimately it means that my browser acted as if I didn’t know Jonah, taking away any of our prebuilt connections. This is what I found!
- Jonahs Twitter! It’s clear that Jonah isn’t very active on Twitter, as he only has 59 tweets at the time of this writing!
- I couldn’t find his Facebook. Dun dun.
- Jonah’s instagram! Again he is locked down- so no one can see his posts without following him.
- Jonah has an account on Pictame which is also private. What I thought was interesting was that though his account in private I could see a variety of photos on Google Images.
- I was able to find several news articles on him! First, There was an article published by Global from September 2017 about lowering the speed limit in school zones. In December 2016, another article published by the University of Regina shared how Jonah volunteered with a group of students to teach English one-on-one to dozens of new Canadians. In November, 2016 the Saskatchewan Synod also wrote an article about Jonah’s volunteering effort teaching English.
Overall, Jonah’s digital footprint is TINY. I was shocked to find so little. It was cool to read about his work with newcomers to Canada, and I feel like for others who sleuth him will be nothing but pleasantly surprised by the incredible work he has done.
