Spokeo is focused on helping people research and reconnect with others.From reuniting families, to providing our users with peace of mind, or even getting involved in the community, take a look at some of the ways Spokeo is helping make a difference.What if you could take e Harmony and all the other dating sites, and mash it up with an aggregated people search engine, like Wink?
The site is still in private beta, but will go live later this week.
I got a chance to check it out today, and it's pretty clear what Copenda has set out to do. Choose to search for males or females, select an age range, and see what you get.
There are other search parameters as well, such as distance from a particular region and keyword.
Checking out the search results, I noticed that a good portion of the profiles come from Match.com, Friendster and hi5 (Facebook is on the way).
If you're really looking to entertain yourself for about 3 minutes, choose different age ranges and then check out the search results to see where the profiles are hailing from.
For each result you'll see whatever text that individual has included in their original social networking profile, their interests, status (single, married, divorced, etc), and a link to their external profile.
Check multiple search results for comparison purposes (it's kind of like shopping! Each result gets their own profile on Copenda as well, which isn't a profile in the regular sense, just a page with the same basic info, and space at the bottom for comments.
As with most people search engines, you can claim this profile as your own.
That brings us to the second aspect of Copenda, which is the personalized end of things.
You can create an account for Copenda, and save items (search results) on your dashboard.
This will help you keep track of all those hotties from Friendster.
