Hour 12. Finding People > Finding the People-Finding Sites

Finding the People-Finding Sites

As with all types of search tools, every people-finder on the Web draws from a different database of names and contact information. Note that these tools don't find only people who have Internet accounts; they search public telephone directories, and so can show you addresses and telephone numbers of people who wouldn't know the Internet if it snuck up and bit 'em.

For any particular name, a search using one tool may turn up no hits, while a search with a different tool may hit pay dirt. It's important to know where several different search tools are, so that if one tool fails, you can try another. Figure 12.1 shows a typical people-finder page.
