123people is a real time people search tool. Using a proprietary search algorithm, you can find people related information consisting of images, videos, phone numbers, email addresses, social networking, Wikipedia profiles and more.
What makes 123people interesting to me — beyond the User Interface (I’m sick of looking at Google and Yahoo search index pages) – is its crowd wisdom. Users can add information to every single search result, like a Wiki.
I played with 123people for 30 minutes this evening and I couldn’t stump the engine. The site found something on every single person I referenced. Of course different spellings turn up different results just as they do on the major engines like Google and Yahoo. For example, a search for ‘Brad Kay’ turns up a more anemic result than ‘Bradley Kay’ where my optimization is far superior.
Give it a ride and let me know what you think.
