How To find Someone's Email Address - Facebook To The Rescue
It's funny how something like an email address can become so important in everyday life and yet it can be so difficult to find one sometimes. Almost everyone has an email address today. Well, at least most of the people that I know have one and I expect that you are the same. Sometimes, if you don't know how to find someone's email address it can be a nightmare. For some reason you can't ask the person what their address is. Often it's because that's why you wanted to send them an email in the first place. You have no other way of contacting them.
Because finding an email address for someone can be very difficult I always suggest to people that ask, that they try searching for it with a web site that specializes in collecting and recording email details. These web sites, loosely called email tracers, spend all their time creating the email directory that you need to find the addresses you want. Unfortunately they can't possibly have every single address in their database no matter how hard they try so you should to know about other ways of searching. The one i'm going to talk about here uses Facebook.
Who does not have an account at Facebook?
There is no foolproof way to find an email address and some addresses are easier to find than others. Knowing about various ways that you can look up email address can come in handy sometimes. I'm going to tell you about one of my favorite methods using Facebook.
Most people that I know have and email address. Well almost as many have FB accounts too and it's possible to find people using the 'Find Friend' search feature. You have to have an FB account to do this but you might as well sign up if you haven't already because most other people have done.
When you have created yourself a Facebook profile you can then click on the "Find Friends" link and type in the name of the person you are interested in into the search box. Clicking 'People' from the menu will show you members who match the name. You may well get a long list of people to choose from depending on how common the name is. Finding the right one can often be easy though because because most people have their photo uploaded.
FB does not display peoples email addresses but it will allow you to send them a private message as long as the recipient has opted to receive messages.
Facebook is good but it isn't always the answer
Not absolutely everyone is on FB unfortunately and many that are do not want to be contacted by anyone who happens to look them up so they may have set their options to stop this happening. If you don't see a link to send them a message you can ask them to be your friend or you can hunt for one of their friends who does allow messages and try and contact your person through them.
This is why I always suggest that you try an online email tracer web site first.
