Why do so many people try people searches to find someone?

Every day there are thousands of people that go online to find someone. Searching for people has been made easier thanks to numerous online websites. However, some sites do work better than others for specific types of searches.

For example finding an old friend, may be better at a site like Classmates.com where, if you are looking to find a parent neglecting their child support you may want to try a public records website to track their last whereabouts.

It doesn't matter what your reason for searching is, to anyone but you. However, since your reason can impact your ability to find whom you are looking for we suggest making sure you know what it is before selecting a site.
