Guide To Finding People on Gmail
Free of Charge
In this part of the Google people search series, we will look at Gmail
people search. A larger percentage of people are now using
for communication. Some use
and others use company domain addresses or similar ones anyway. Gmail is quite strict on security and I will tell
you that finding people on Gmail is almost impossible. Well, at least from Google anyway.
How to Find People on
There are other places that you might come across that
might be capable of finding people on Gmail. The places which can offer you with tools
to find people for
called people finder sites.
Safety of Gmail vs.
Unlike other internet service providers (ISP's) which
include your internet protocol (IP) address in the header section of your email, Gmail does not have that. It would be quite easy for someone
with the appropriate skills to trace someone's location from an IP address. So your best chance
tofinding people on Gmail is to try the people locator sites, though I'm certain
that the service comes at a fee.
Share Calendar Tab
There is one possible way that you can
use although it is not a perfect method. You can go to the
share this calendar tab, enter the email address, click add person and then save. When you come back you will
find the person's name and other details there.
This method is flawed
for various reasons. One being that a lot of people sign up with the same name that appears in the email or even
alias names and so cannot be said to be reliable.
I will however refer you to one place
where you might be able to find
people based on their email
address . Try a search on wink.com .
