PI buzz – March 2013

More on public records and Internet searching. You get an idea of what keeps me busy in the work realm. My cases have ranged from the bread and butter: find someone, find where they work, and find out everything about them to deep background on high-level executives. Fun cases have unfolded from the Internet-age dilemmas of determining whether a Facebook “friend” is a real person!

Each month, I summarize the research links I’ve added, which can be found in the left sidebar under “Recent Posts.”

Top posts in the past 6 months

Gaps in corporations databases

Dynamic Internet searching with Google products

More consolidation of private investigator’s databases

Searching Craigslist postings

Defects in online “official” public records

Post from Facebook to Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn

How do I find a Facebook profile by phone number?

Retrieving full LinkedIn profiles

Old But Still Good
Posts that don’t appear on the Home page often get lost over time. These are still searchable by keyword in the site search engine. You can also access them by month from the “Archives” section or by topic from “Categories” in the left sidebar.

Other Places To Find Me
My business website.

Content that doesn’t prompt a posting but is still valuable often finds a home at the PI buzz Twitter site and on Facebook.

I try not to be redundant, so if you follow me on all the different sites you won’t get recycled material. Even if that is good for the planet.

So Good It Must Be Repeated
The following announcement is for new subscribers and for the rest of you who may have forgotten.

My most recent writing is on the PIbuzz Home page and listed under “Recent Posts”. The section titled “Resources” has custom search engines of different public records that allow you to retrieve content across multiple websites from one search. California Cities and California Newspapers help narrow your searches to content at the websites I’ve included there. The Government Employees (Note: I changed the page name and URL from the former “Government Pay.”) page links to government and newspaper databases of government employees and their salaries.

Feed the blog by visiting the links in the Google ads, subtly situated in the sidebars. And “Like” all posts that you do like by clicking on the button of your preferred social network.

I welcome comments and encourage you to respond to other’s, which are sometimes pleas for assistance finding people. If you fashion yourself a writer or have a point of view that fits with the themes of PI buzz, float a proposal my way for a guest posting.

You can always reach me at info@pibuzz.com.

Happy reading.
