        Have some fun searching for friends, adversaries, lost relatives or namesakes on the Internet

        http://pipl.com searches deep into web sites to locate names.

        Do you have personal privacy concerns?
        I suggest you try your own name first to see how exposed you are on the Internet.

        http://Pipl.com

        Another good web site to "people" search is at http://www.123people.co.uk

        Both sites offer country specific searches.

            oh dear,
            tried it and it seems I do not exist,
            must try some other names and see if they exist.

                I do not appear to exist either :o

                I have done a search for other names though and was surprised at the information gathered.

                I think people need to be careful as to what information they disclose on the web.

                Just my thoughts of course as people will do what they want.

                    Correct Ken,
                    have always found it strange that people baulk at National Identity Cards but then post all sorts of personal info about themselves on chat rooms and websites for all the world to read,and have mobiles that can pinpoint their movements and contacts 24 hours a day.

                        The book 1984 by George Orwell comes to mind and big brother is watching you.
                        Which rises a question to my mind as to why governments are so interested in getting as many people as possible hooked to the internet :-/

                            Ken, there is no need for governments to get involved, people volunteer this of their own volition.
                            We are all celebrities now, you may as well quote Andy Warhol who said we all have 15 minutes of fame, or apparently in my case infamy

                                            I tried my name and the names of all my family and even some friends but not one of them exist. I must be one of a group of very cautious people. It was fun looking though. :o

                                                I also tried tried looking up family & friends, like me, they don’t seem to exist.

                                                However. I was determined to find someone, so I looked up Elvis Presley. Not only was he there, but there were some nice little photos of him aswell.
