Search For People Online To Find Your Friends

By Jason Reed

Search for people online to find long lost friends. These can be people you have not seen in years and you want to invite them to a class reunion, your wedding or other social events.

There are web tools you can use to search for people, and most are free, but they are restricted to public records information. If you are looking for criminal records, there may be a fee.

Intimidated By New Technology

I have been out of high school for thirty years. When we were in school there was talk about personal computers, but we did not have any in our high school so I did not get introduced to using one until I went to college.

As with most adults that are introduced to new technology I was intimidated by the computer. It took me several years before I used one to its full capability at work and it has only been recently that we have one in our home. Today I find that I rely on the computer to help me with many tasks.

Volunteered To Plan The Class Reunion

I mentioned that I have been out of high school for thirty years. This means that the dreaded class reunion is being planned. I must have drank too much at the twenty year reunion because I volunteered to help plan this one. I have not stayed in touch with very many classmates.

I was mentioning this to a friend and she told me to use the search for people programs on the computer. She said that she had done this when she was trying to find her old college room mate. She explained that you can search for people through free programs. It is easiest if you have some basic information about the person you are looking for.

Most Search For People Programs Are Free

The information can be as general as the state the person lives in or as specific as their telephone number or address. Most of the search for people programs on the internet are free, such as the white pages. If you want detailed information such as criminal history or financial information you need to pay a fee.

I started using a search for people program looking for classmates. As I began finding addresses and telephone numbers it occurred to me that it is not very easy to disappear in this world any more. It used to be that if you were not in a local phone book, people would have to rely on relatives or friends to get your new address and telephone number.

Information On People Available Online

Now if you use a telephone carrier, the information is readily available. Even if you have an unlisted number, through the search for people programs you can narrow down which area code the person lives in.

I found that I was tempted to look at the criminal records that were available. If you have the money and want to spend it on digging up dirt on others you could certainly do this through the search for people programs.

Information Is Limited To Public Records

The information that is available is limited to public records, but it no longer means that you need to go to the courthouse and request information from the clerk of courts. I resisted paying for this information on classmates.

I did find out that there is another site where you can find out if someone is in jail or prison and what their crime and sentence is. I found one of my classmates in this site. I guess he will miss the reunion.

When looking for classmates for a class reunion, you may find your old high school sweetheart and wonder what happened to her. She might have married and changed her name, so it may be hard to find any information on her. But then, you may meet her at the class reunion, as he classmates may have told her the class reunion is on and hopefully she attends.

Search For New Friends In Online Communities

There are other areas on the internet where you can search for people. You can visit and join online communities and search for new friends. You can have friends all around the world, find out how other people live their daily lives in your town, in another state or in another country.

I have friends that I have never met face to face, but I have been in touch for years, through online communities. They are like penpals. You can exchange ideas, talk about daily life and events in their country.

There are so many friends you can find when you want to search for people.

More Dating Facts....

What is the whole deal with internet dating?
Many people find that the internet is a fast way to connect with many people. It is probably less expensive than going to bars looking for that special someone. Most websites allow you to customize your search, thus eliminating people you think might not be best suited for you. There are also websites that are based on important issues such as religion, sexuality or even age and ethnic groups.

I always thought that finding a date on the internet or through a personal ad was for someone afraid to get out. Is this true?It might be true for a small minority of individuals. Most internet dating users find that websites give a chance to get to know the person before committing to that all important first date.

It also allows you the chance to show a different aspect of yourself. If you are shy it could mean the difference between an awkward first date between strangers and a comfortable meeting between two people who already know something about each other.
