Plaxo is social and professional networking with a bit of a twist. Just when you thought each was all it could be, something like this comes along. Plaxo is actually something designed by one of the people who first brought Napster to the Internet. When you want to find someone, especially an email address or a phone number, you would not be wasting your time by searching this site. With 20 million members, your missing person could very well be listed within its ranks.
The networking site Plaxo has a different approach to sharing information with those on the site. It can do the usual things that some networks do, like updating friends status, showing what they have posted, and even what they have been doing online, but there is more to it. If you go to Plaxo and take a tour, you will see what that means.
There you can set up your own profile, and you can add whatever information that you want. This includes name, address, phone number, and email address. This means that those you okay have access to those things. If you have this up, and something changes, Plaxo sends that new information out to those on your list. That means if you find someone, you may get a notice when their phone number has been updated.
Working through Plaxo can be a lot like the other sites you know. Try to find and use the search features with the names and email addresses of those that you know, and for those that you are searching for. You may not find someone right away, but they could sign up at any time. Keep your profile active so you are notified of any other changes that your friends make.
Searching Plaxo by name for a phone number is pretty straight forward, but it might not be as useful if you have a number but you don't know name to go with it. When that happens, you may find a web site that shows you how to search a phone number much more helpful. It can also help you verify any number you have found through Plaxo if you just are not sure you have the right person.
