Though there are some that just spend a few minutes online each day to check email, most have found a way to communicate with other means through their Internet connection. Social networking is just one of the latest trends that has allowed people to reach each other in a whole new way. MySpace is one of the most successful of these sites, and that means you should always search through their users when you want to find a missing phone number for an old friend.
The best way to search through MySpace would be to sign up on your own. You don't have to do anything with your profile, but filling out some information can help expedite your search endeavor. Once you are done searching, you can delete your profile if you are not interested in hanging around, or you can fill it out all the way. That is a personal choice.
What is great about using MySpace for searching for a phone number is that you have a large variety of searches open to you. You can use what information you have in the appropriate search to speed things up. If you know an email address, you can use that particular search. If you just know a name, use the name search rather than the username search. Those are usually two different things. If you are not sure about spelling, try all of the variations of which you can think for the best results.
When searching out old college classmates and roommates, MySpace is a great starting place as well. When you enter your school information, you can more easily search for a person and their phone number by looking at other alumni who have added the same school information. Add your school, and then click on the link that takes you to matches.
If you find a phone number that matches your friend, you may want to further confirm that the number is correct, or even that it is still current. You can go elsewhere online for this information. Try a site designed to allow you to trace a number to see what comes up.
