The internet brought the UK and all its information closer together. A wide range of tools and searches are now readily available online that can be used to connect and find people. Whilst there are many ways and means of locating someone, the ones here are some of the most efficient and reliable. The were bred out of the internet and bring millions of people together. Social Media platforms, discussion groups, domain name owners and more. Without the internet, each does not exist.
There is a reported 40 million plus users of social media in the United Kingdom alone. Many have publicly available profiles and can be easily found online. Type in a name, hit search, sift through the results and its often person found. Not only that but you also are given a means to contact them. Most free UK people searches start and end with social media.
Social Media ranges from the all-round such as Facebook, to the more specific such as LinkedIn for business and Instagram for photo sharing.
When conducting a people search, these tools can be handy and save a bit of time. A general search engine such as Google has billions of pages in its index. Typing in a name and other keywords into the index can often produce on target results. Learning to use Google’s advanced features can help in this department and narrow down the scope of your search. It has both benefits and disadvantages working this way. It can cover a range of areas and fields you never thought to look, which in some cases it’s brilliant for finding someone or information leading to locating them. Its downside is that the robot can’t complete forms, so there’s no results from the deep web or databases.
A Meta Search is a little different. This style of search covers a range of different sources and returns results from each where available. They “may” access some deep web information, but commonly it returns searchable information that any generic search engine finds. For the UK they don’t seem to access much in the way of deep web information and if they do, I haven’t found it. The real advantage to a search like this is that it may save you time when it gets it right.
