How Easy Is It To Find People Online?
It can be very easy to find people online – or it can be very hard, depending on the method you use. Most people, when they decide to start looking for a particular person online, head for Google or social networks like Facebook.
The problem with this approach is that it delivers very patchy results. It's fairly easy to find people if they have distinctive names and they habitually do things that appear on the web. However, someone who keeps themselves to themselves, and doesn't have social networking profiles, can be very hard to find indeed using this method.
A much more reliable way to find people online is to use a web-based Electoral Roll search service like People Trace Online. The UK Electoral Roll (available through this site in its edited version) is a great way to start with an online search. You can search for people online by name, address or by the people who share the address with them – it's quick, easy, cost-effective and offers a good chance of success!
