Are you looking to get in contact with a long lost friend? Or you want to follow a certain celebrity? Or are you looking for anyone else in particular?
People frequently feel the urge to locate some people on the web. It can be either that you remember your childhood buddy and want to get in contact with him again, or you might have just met somebody on your commute to office and want to build the friendship.
The reason can be any, but is finding them really that easy task? That depends on how active the concerned person is on the web. There are numerous ways you can find a person on the internet.
Whether you know of any other way or not, usually your first action would be to find the person on Facebook. Yes, you can do that!
Facebook is the major social media platform you will ever come across. Even though other platforms are growing in popularity more today, but Facebook has so far the largest database of users. So there are more than 95% chances that you will find the concerned person here on Facebook.
If not, try finding them on other social media platforms too, like Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. Since Instagram requires you to sign up with Facebook account, so a person needs to be present on Facebook for him to access Instagram. Hence, finding on Instagram won’t be of much help if you cannot find him on Facebook.
Conduct a people search
There are many websites which conduct an extensive and deep people search on the name you entered. This search is conducted on typical and non typical websites, both, some of which are not a part of social media family.
For example, you might have your name listed on job portals, news websites, Google, and so on. So when someone will conduct a name search on your name, results from almost everywhere will pop up on their screens.
These two are the most popular ways one can carry out a name search and connect with the people they wanted to on the web.
