The old way to search for people was by calling long distance information where you thought they might be and hoping to score a hit. Not very efficient. The less-old way was to input their name into a white pages online directory. Better. But the newest way to search for someone is by using a people-search engine like PeekYou.
Most people who live in the modern world have some sort of online profile, and PeekYou is ideal for mining what's online: web sites, social networks, photos, etc. You can also create an online profile and add it to PeekYou, for yourself or friends and relatives. Registering allows you to keep track of your edits to PeekYou. So, the next time you want to find someone, give PeekYou a try. With over 50 million profiles to date there's a good chance you'll find what you're looking for.
