Yet Another People Search Engine: Peek You

By - August 15, 2007

PeekyouPeekYou relaunches today. I’ve played a bit with it, the release claims it’s better than everyone else, I don’t see it. The bar ain’t too high right now.

A PeekYou profile helps other people find your websites, social-networking pages, photos, or anything else about you online. You can also create a profile for friends or relatives to ensure that they may also be easily found online.

    Sounds like a poor name choice considering the privacy concerns people will have this that type of application.

    John, I like the idea that everything isn’t just scrapped from social sites like LinkedIn, MySpace, FaceBook and others. This gives you the opportunity to manage your personal information online.
