Investigating people on the internet

February 17, 2010 | By | 2 Replies More

A friend recently recommended two sites that aggregate information on people whose names you enter at the sites. If you need to investigate someone’s background using only the Internet, these are two good places to start.

I tried a few searches at Peekyou and Snitchname, and I am rather impressed at the information that can be gathered by these free sites . . .

    Your mileage may vary based on the scope of the individual's internet presence and the uniqueness of their name! I suppose this is good news for anyone who wants to cling to some anonymity. I, on the other hand, would rather expand my internet presence so the primary "Erika Price" on the 'net isn't some homeopath!
