Website of the Day: yoName

This is definitely one of those websites that you can't help but get addicted to! When you go to yoName, you can type in someone's email address (see below) or their first and last name to see which social networks they are apart of. Myspace, Facebook, Friendster you name it - yoName will search it. Whether you are looking for celebrities, old flames, friends or family members, this awesome website will do all the detective work for you in a matter of a few seconds- fantastic! Update: Thanks to all the users who have submitted comments below. As we've learned, be cautious of typing in someone's email as that person will be sent an email saying that someone was searching their online profiles on yoName- don't worry they won't know its you, but still- eek! You are safe with just typing in first and last names or usernames.

I like this site although it's a little addicting to look up people(not to metion a little weird.) I did find some old friends and saw what they look like six years later - they all look great.

Ah, it did find my Imeem, Livejournal, and Last FM but I had to type in my usernames.
Pink_Lipstick Pink_Lipstick 8 years
It found my Facebook and my MySpace, but I also have a YouTube, Livejournal, Last FM, Vox, and an Imeem account that it didn't find. Granted, I don't use half of those, but still. :)

Thanks for all the comments and for the very VERY helpful FYI on entering someone's email. I've updated the post to let everyone know. Play it safe and just enter first and last names!

Geez this site is SCARY. I think I should have read the comments before I searched for my ex-es. I agree, this could bring out the 'stalker' in people. Luckily, I couldn't find myself on there. Sheesh.. I'm never using this website ever again.

Rather creepy. Of course the first person I searched for was myself and then I got an email saying someone looked using my email address. Eek. Good thing I didn't start looking for random friends.

Vannuccia Vannuccia 8 years
Clarient- Does the e-mail tell you who searched for you? or just that you've been searched for? because I just searched for someone!!!:(
Vannuccia Vannuccia 8 years
Brilliant site, but a little bit too efficient for my liking ;)I bet stalkers love using it!! :s

what does the e-mail say clairenet?

Neat! It doesn't work that well, but I tried it anyway. My phantom room mate doesn't have an account ANYWHERE (I checked each site, too). That stinks, but I guess the mystery will be exciting. I hope she's not anti-computer.
