Reverse Phone Search How to Find Old Friends


Visitors: 264

Thousands of us log onto the Internet daily in an effort to find old friends. You probably have an old friend which you have would have liked checking up on from time to time - if it were possible. We lost friends for many reasons:

  • Perhaps you or they moved to a new residence far away
  • Life changes, such as job relocations or new schools are common diversions on the road of life
  • You decided to change social crowds and simply stopped communicating
  • You had a falling out in younger years, and over time have remembered the more positive times

Whatever the reason, its very common. We're social animals, and we all make and lose friends throughout life. When it comes to finding someone, the Internet is an understandable first place to look these days. It currently connects almost 2 billion people together, and the number grows exponentially on a daily basis. The rapidly advancing pace of technology ensures that progress will only continue.

Using Social Networking Sites and People Searches

A common starting point for finding someone includes entering their full name into what is currently the largest search engine on-line. The search engine then returns results from a multitude of sites, including possible company pages, community portals, forums, social networks (myspace, facebook), personal homepages, and more. The most likely place to find someone by name these days is on the social networks. You can also go directly to these networks and type names into search fields.

The next place is quickly becoming the second most popular option. This involves using people search engines such as Pipl, PeekYou, Zabasearch, or Militaryconnections. Very much like the social networks, you enter your friend's first and last name into a form and search.

There are drawbacks to these sites, however, the biggest being the simple fact that they still only contain a fraction of the total population within any given country. Even then only the most computer and Internet savvy people create profiles on these pages.

How to Find an Old Friend with Only Their Phone Number

So the second option, once the first methods have failed us, is to perform a reverse search using their phone number. Special websites have been created which allow us to search 98% of all phone numbers, even people who own cell phones or have privately listed numbers are included. These websites take information from millions of public records held by businesses world-wide, thus they're very likely to have any given person in their database. You simply type in their phone number, click search, and wait a few seconds for the results.

These directories do have to charge a small fee to maintain their operating expenditures. However, your saved time is usually worth more than the cost, and refunds are available if you can not find information about your friends.

It's really cool to know we now live in a world in which technology has made keeping track of and communicating with our acquaintances easier than ever. Just 100 years ago, you could have lost someone for an entire lifetime with almost no chance of ever encountering them again - no matter how hard you tried.
