With how fast a pace we live our lives today, it seems pretty easy to lose touch with friends and family we don't see very often. In time, you may lose a certain friends contact information entirely. Thanks to the many advances we have had as a society, it is becoming easier and easier to track down long lost friends. A good place to start is to find a person's email address.
Why is it so easy to find someone's email address? Well, more and more people log onto the internet every day, and most of the time they get involved in some sort of social media, like twitter, MySpace, and Facebook. All of these services require a user to have an electronic mail account. And because of this, you can use a few different techniques to track someone down.
There are places online that are called an email address directories, that are free to use, and can typically help you find who you're looking for. Yahoo has a pretty popular directory that you can search for someone's internet mail account. Or, you can always throw the information you have into Google. That usually returns some of what you are looking for.
You can also go to the social media sites I mentioned before. Facebook has become super popular over that past couple of years. You would have a hard time finding anyone who hasn't signed up yet. So if you went to a site like this, and punched in as much information you had on the person, chances are you would have a hit. And if that doesn't work, try one of the other really popular sites, like MySpace or twitter.
Last but not least, if you still haven't found the person you're looking for, you can use an email reverse search. When you use a service like this, you can usually find not only their name, but an address and phone number as well. Not all email reverse search services are created equal, so make sure the one you are using is reputable. These services don't cost a whole lot, and can save you a lot of time in the long run.
