Spock - A Great Place For Search

Spock is a free people search application that organises information around you, and their mission is to have a search result for everyone in the world. People can be searched by name or by a tag consisting of a personal piece of information. These tags can be created by the person, or by other Spock members.

Spock is not a social networking site per se but they do have some elements that resemble a social networking site such as having an in-house messaging system and creating your own network of people on Spock.

It is actually quite a fun and useful service to use. I did a search on myself and only one search result came back, pointing to this blog. That's pretty neat, if you ask me! Sure they still have a long way to go to fulfil their mission of having a search result for every single person in the world but they're definitely moving in the right direction.

You can also choose to search for celebrities or anyone else for that matter. The search result for Michael Jackson returned with the pop singer coming out top on the list. It's interesting to note the tags associated with him ranging from things such as pop singer, King of Pop, Moonwalk, Jackson 5 and Neverland Ranch to ugly, scary, crazy, plastic surgery, sex scandal and paedophile. How Kevin Federline ended up in the top 10 search results for Michael Jackson really beats me.

Registration is pretty fast and straightforward. Being a member of Spock will enable you to do quite a few things non-members would be unable to do. There's just so much that a paid review can tell you, so head on down to - a great place for search to check them out yourselves. I'm sure you'll find your visit to be quite enjoyable.
