Social networking is a great idea for fun, but that is often not a good place to make business contacts. This is because social profiles are often very personal and have very little to do with work issues. This led people to start what are known as professional networking sites. These work like social networks, but are kept on a career-based level. LinkedIn is one of these sites, and can be a great place to find contact information, specifically phone numbers.

You may not be comfortable with what you see when you first go to LinkedIn because it is different than what you may be used to on MySpace or any other networking site. There are a lot of options, but they are just that - options. You can add a lot of information if you want, or you can leave your profile mostly blank. Adding your profile to the mix is a good idea, however, as it makes searching so much easier.

LinkedIn will take your email account information, if you choose to share it, and can see if there are an email addresses you have that match up with users on the site. You do have to give up your email password, but that is very safe to do. If you are worried, go and change your password on your email once you have searched to be on the safe side. If any matches come up, you can then investigate further to see if you have found a true match.

If you don't find a match that way, do not give up. People change email addresses all of the time, and they could be using a different one for this site. Use any and all of the other search options they have to see if you can find the phone number you seek. Add your school information to see if you can find someone that way. However, keep in mind that this only works for those you knew from college or high school.

You may not find a match through LinkedIn, but it is one of the better sources out there. If you find something, but you are not sure if it is the same person you are looking for, try a site designed to allow you to trace a number . This can help you verify if you have the right or wrong number.
