Yasni: People Search
November 14, 2008
yasni a people search engine, just launched in the U.S. If you’re on the web, yasni supposedly will find you. But the search is on first and last names, and there are lots of “Jessica Bratcher”s out there. My yasni search returned 30 results, including hits on amazon.com, Facebook, MySpace, Google News and Blogs, Technorati, even criminal searches. But for more listings, they’ll send me an e-mail list within 24 hours.
People search has been and remains very important. Zoom Info, LinkedIn, and other sites provide useful information. I have found Cluuz.com useful as well. Cluuz.com displays relationship charts. I did some ego surfing to test yasni and I ran the same queries on Cluuz.com. On Cluuz.com, I found an interview I did in 2005. Cluuz.com also surfaced several articles about newspaper awards I’ve received. On my test queries, I did not find yasni as useful. But it is early in the game for yasni. I will check back in a month or so to see how the service develops. I do recommend that you give it a whirl.
