Happy New Year!

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

2010It’s been an incredible year for all of us at PeopleFinders, and we hope 2009 was a prosperous and joyful time for you. A lot has happened since we launched this blog on May 29, 2009.

We’ve seen so many amazing events unfold over the year. We shared a collective feeling of bereavement at the loss of celebrities like Michael Jackson, Farah Fawcett and Patrick Swayze.  These beloved entertainers brought so much joy into our lives, and their unfortunate passing reminds of us how important it is to hold the people that we care about close. We are constantly reminded of just how unpredictable life can be.

The Hottest Tech Trend of 2010

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

monitor3In 2009 people from every demographic seemed to become more tech-savvy than ever before. When the year began, technology like smart phones, apps, Facebook and Twitter existed, but they didn’t have the widespread acceptance and loyalty they currently enjoy. People of all ages and walks of life have become fascinated with these high-tech websites and gadgets.

Throughout the year millions of people created social networking accounts that allowed them to communicate with friends, family and complete strangers; purchased phones that were just as powerful as their computers and laptops; and downloaded apps that gave them the ability to do almost anything. One of the biggest buzz terms of 2009 was “real time” – people were suddenly able to learn all about anything, while it was actually happening.

Who Intrigues You?

Friday, December 18th, 2009

People CoverOn Friday, December 18, People magazine releases their “25 Most Intriguing of 2009” issue. The list of 25 celebrities and newsmakers that People believes made the biggest impact this year is topped by Taylor Swift, the young musician who made a major splash at the Grammys this year.

People’s list contains more than 25 intriguing individuals – some people were listed as couples (like Barack and Michelle Obama), and others were clumped into larger groups (like the Kardashian sisters). Every winner was given their own title, such as “The Power Pair” for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, or “The Departing Diva” for Oprah Winfrey.

Finding Public Records Isn’t Always Easy.

Collecting public records on your own is difficult. We can help.

Collecting public records on your own is difficult. We can help.

We live in the information age, a time when people are able to get almost any type of data they want from thousands of sources. This wealth of information has generated a new challenge: finding data that is complete, accurate and reliable.

Many companies sell public records, but they are often accused of providing inaccurate, incomplete or outdated information. These companies don’t always own the data they sell, and sometimes utilize a “bait and switch” tactic to get people to purchase multiple reports. They do this by displaying a teaser that indicates a lot of information is available, but when a customer purchases a report they discover that they must buy several more to get all the details. This leaves people with two choices: order reports from a public records company and hope for the best, or try to find the information they need on their own.

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

wavelogoPeople have been talking about Google Wave for a while now, even though only a small percentage of the population has actually seen it. One big question remains – will Google Wave change the way people communicate online?

Google Wave is poised to be an exciting new way to interact with other people. It’s said to be a combination of email, instant messenger, Wikipedia and social networking – and it all goes on in real time. Most people will have to try Google Wave for a while to completely understand what it does, but you can get the basic idea before it’s released to the general public. To start, think of Google Wave as an extension of your inbox…

A Shared Moment Of Silence

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

michael_jacksonFor the last several days we’ve watched in stunned silence as people all over the world took time out of their busy lives to remember Michael Jackson. The King of Pop passed away on the same day as Farah Fawcett, June 25, 2009, making it a date that will be memorialized for generations to come.

Although most of us did not know him personally, Michael Jackson’s music and fame made him one of the most publicly recognizable entertainers of all time. When we spend so much time watching and listening to a celebrity, it’s easy to start to feel a personal connection with that person. Despite the many trials and tribulations Michael Jackson may have faced over the years, he touched the hearts and made a connection with millions of people while he was here.

It’s All About a Connection

Friday, May 29th, 2009

photo_11Ask any of the friendly folks at PeopleFinders.com what our company is all about and they’ll say something like “We show people how to find each other”. That’s because we all share a common goal –to help people find and connect with other people.

Most everyone has a story to share about missing someone special from their past – a family member you’ve lost touch with, the friend you haven’t seen in years or even the timeless tale of an old flame who never left your heart. It can happen to anyone – people change jobs, move away and get busy with their lives – but they never forget.
