snitch.name – social networking white pages

Snitchname

snitch.name is one of the reasons I’ve become a little uneasy about the current obsession with social networks. The tool offers a very basic service, just enter in a name and it will find all the social networks where that person is a member. Sounds cool, but in the wrong hands…? Anyway I guess it’s a pretty useful thing if you’re one of those who can’t remember which of the 20 communities you’ve signed up to, or to find lost friends maybe, so I won’t be curmudgeonly. Much.

 This application was originally a tool I developed because I was tired of having to search in various place to find information about someone I met. It hasn’t been designed to be fancy, but solves a real world problem until the people that buid social services decide on some profile seraching APIs. Until that time comes snitch.name is the best tool for the job.

    Wow! It' sooo much better than just googling for a person!
