We’ve got 123 invites to giveaway to CyberNet readers for a new people search engine called 123people.com. Before we get into the details about how you can get an invite, we’ll explain what the service is first.
In a nutshell, 123people uses an algorithm to aggregate publicly available information from all kinds of sites on the web. Their competitors include sites like Spock, and Wink. Some of the information that they collect includes:
- email addresses
- postal addresses
- telephone numbers
- tags and comments from social sites
The list of sites they gather information from is pretty lengthy and includes sources like Google, Yahoo, Facebook, LinkedIn, Xing, YouTube and Wikipedia. Users are able to claim, tag, vote, and comment on aggregated profiles.
They already launched in Europe and now they’re preparing to launch in the United States. Part of that preparation is opening up their private beta to US based users. The only downside is that search results at this point are optimized for European users so keep that in mind while you’re using the service.
