How to Check Your Date's Background Online
With more and more single people turning to online dating, as well as looking online for employees or other services, it's well worth your time to learn how to perform a little Internet detective work on someone.
Hillary Rhodes offers some great advice in her article for PC World. Whether you're about to meet someone you've been "dating" online for the first time, or you're hunting for your next perfect employee, it was pointed out that it's worth the minute or two it takes to do a simple Google search.
Beyond Google, there are also a few other sites that can use to check up on your Internet friends before you meet them in real life. Websites like Spokeo.com is a nice place to start. Spokeo is a search aggregator that acquires information about your subject from social networking sites.
But what this article doesn't point out, however, is that Spokeo isn't always very accurate, particularly when it comes to real life details like location, income, or criminal or work records. The same applies to Date Check, which is powered by the Intelius search engine.
Looking someone up online can occasionally net you some pretty important information, but this article really shines when it comes to offering warning signs to watch out for when you meet singles you've only known online. For instance, look out for inconsistencies that might crop up between a person's various online identities.
This article is chock full of useful information, and must-read material for anyone searching for someone online.
