How can I find someone online?

Virginia Hill July 18, 2010

How can I get in touch with my sister I have not seen in five years? I want to eMail her by Facebook, MySpace, or any website. I know her full name, alias name, and her last known location.

    If you can not find the person on your own, there are companies out there that specialize in tracking down hard to find people ie Re-Puter LLC

    If you have a name of person that you are looking for you can try at WAATP. That's a great site for finding informations on a person that can help you in order of finding it.

    I recommend that you post a new question.

      Stumbled upon this thread while doing some searching.  Saw "Tina's" comment and wanted to say...... WHAT???  You "recommend that she posts a new question".... WHY??  That's pretty stupid advice.  Why didn't you keep that one to yourself... or at least EXPLAINED what you meant by that??  It sounds real F-ing Rude!!

        Well, I didn't mean to be rude. Sorry!

        However, I think my point was proven and it's too bad you couldn't see that. One year later and still no one has solved Splashy's question and proven me wrong. Why? Because typically only people also looking for an answer find these questions inside a comment thread. And of course they are pissed off when they see my comment.

        Meanwhile, had the first person looking for an answer posted a new question, it would have turned up on the Answers homepage, it would have received a lot more exposure, someone may have been able to actually solve it, and the next person trying to fix the same issue would have found the solved question, rather than this unsolved comment within an old thread.

        See my logic? Does it still seem stupid?

        By the way, I have been the Editor of this Q&A forum for over two years, meaning I see how it works on a daily basis. I have been publishing and reading comments for thousands of questions, so I have accumulated quite a bit of experience. Seriously, I'm only trying to help people!

    How do I delete a google search history on Viewpad7. It creates an additional tab above the virtul keyboard everytime I type a word to search. I am not the only using this tablet.

    You could try or, which is the website almost every people find I have found end ups linking to. It is great for finding people and isn't too expensive.

    Hi Virginia - I've spent a lot of time researching folks online for research that I do, and I've found the most effective search is on social networks. Here are few examples:


    If you know her full first/last name, the odds are pretty good you'll find her if she's at all active on any of the popular social networks (and most people these days are). Good luck!

    You could try Googling her. You have no idea how lucky you can get try using quotes to get even more accurate results. For example, if the name is Sarah James, you should Google with the terms "Sarah James". Use the same technique on various social networking websites. You can also include her last location in the search terms to get even more specific results. You never know what might work. For example, "Sarah James" +Seattle. Finally, try using people search directories. One such directory is given below:
