How to Look Up People on the Internet

by Regina Paul

Being able to look people up on the internet is the difference between locating your lost loved ones and having them still be lost. For example, college roommates grow apart, relatives move away, and friends go to college out of state. Another reason you might need this ability is a health condition. For example, if you are adopted and have discovered you have a rare disease that is hereditary, you would need to find at least one if not both of your birth parents. Internet searches can make this task faster and easier.
