People Search!

September 29, 07 by Bharani

I realized that Linkedin.com, a leading professional networking platform and Orkut.com, leading social networking site are working towards exposing their respective data through APIs. This is great news to “People Search Engines” like Pipl.com and Spock.com. Till now these engines have been crawling all public urls of Social networking sites, name databases and blogs (technorati does host the details of people behind the registered blogs). Even with the limited information extraction, the quality of search has been good. With the exposure of the data from the social networking sites, the quality of search would improve highly because of rich and structured information available.

Try a search against your name in Pipl.com or Spock.com.
