In today’s Internet world of booming social networks, it’s easier to find lost friends and colleagues than it ever was before.In fact, the private world of yesterday is now an online world with open access to social networks, government databases, and public records.Social networks are very hard to avoid on the Internet.
I found that Yo Name could only find a few of my online profiles.
Wink searches social networks such as My Space, Reunion, Linked In, Friendster, and others.
Just a straight search without location found dozens of weblinks blogs, social network profiles and documents, most of which were an accurate hit.
Needless to say, I’d recommend 123people to anyone looking to find if anyone they know has any content whatsoever published on the Internet about them.
Conducting a deep search for myself, I found that the results covered data pulled from profiles at My Space, Facebook, and countless other sites like article directories and blogs.
I was especially impressed by Piple’s efforts to dig for email addresses and content within miscellaneous web pages.Another powerful search is Google’s Blog Search which will find anyone who has published to a blog on the Internet.The results on this search turned up my published articles at Make Use Of, those at my three blogs, and even articles that I wrote for clients and had completely forgotten about.Because of this, the odds are very good that the person you’re looking for has registered and created a profile in at least one of those networks.is one free website that searches through a list of over thirty popular and obscure social networks including Imeem, Linked In, Face Book, My Space, Yahoo 360, Flickr, and Zorpia. The results are displayed in tabular format so you can select which social network search to focus on.The results are comprehensive and include results from over 40 major websites.
