What's that good new social search person finder?

Asked by phocks (137 points ) January 3rd, 2011

I found it the other day, but can’t remember what it was. I think it started with an “A” but not 100% sure. You could find people via name, email, phone number, and it would bring up all the social sites that they were on.

The one I’ve used most recently is kgb people and it seems to cover just about everything!

I managed to find the site that I was on the other day. No “A” in it at all. haha.

It is: http://www.spokeo.com

I can tell you right now that they aren’t nearly as accurate as you’d think. Unless you are good at intel analysis, you’ll have a very hard time getting accurate/useful information, especially if being up-to-date matters to you at all.

Try kgbpeople.com – it is free to use and does a thorough search through popular social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn + Google, Yahoo & Bing and also looks through YouTube, Flickr and a host of other sites all for free!

It’s spokeo.com

and it’s not as good as you think. There are three instances of “me” on there (by name and address) that have misleading and false information. It’s an invasion of privacy, by them using names and records to post your info online before even asking you, and before confirming that it’s even correct!

NO ONE can find me on facebook that I don’t want to find me. Why would I then be OK with people compiling true and false data, and posting it under my name search without consent?

OH, and the founder of Spokeo . . . yeah, his personal info can’t even be found on the site where he posts everyone elses. . . hmmmm.
