There's a lot of sites that can help you find lost friends online. Whether you're searching for classmates, or co-workers, just having basic info makes it easy to track and find people online. The online world makes it easier than ever to find people searching through the internet. To find lost friends online you'll need basic information about them. Usually full name, and area of resistance makes it a little easier to find someone online.

There's a quite a few people search places like social sites, and websites that help you get in find lost friends online. You can even find lost friends online for free. You can do basic online peoples search first, before you consider signing up for any sites that require you to pay in order to find old friends. You might get lucky and find it's that easy! Searching for someone online should be done with the right intentions. It shouldn't be used as a way to cyber stalk someone.

The most basic and easy way to search for someone online is by using google's search engine. Google is the most powerful web site on the internet. It keeps billions of different sites people occupy online. Type in their full name on google's search engine. For example, if they have a name like "Jim Jackson" then that might make it a little more difficult to find them. Since, there's got to be thousands of "Jim Jackson's" out there. Google is the largest search engine online. Something might pop up on the web from the lost friend you're searching for. It usually requires more effort to find lost friends online, but google is a very large and powerful site. I would submit the name, and maybe a birthday, area of resistance, or even specific job into google's search engine. It might help narrow search results and you might find the friend you're looking for.

The next best bet is searching online social networks to find lost friends online. Social networks have been used to reunite old classmates, lost family members, or even to help those find father's, mother's, or children they've never met. Social networks make it possible to keep in touch with family and friends no matter how far apart they are.

Sign up for facebook or myspace, two of the more larger and popular social network sites on the internet. Social networks make it easy to find lost friends online.Then type in the name or names of the lost friends you're trying to connect with. There's a pretty good chance they have a profile on one of these sites. A picture of them can typically be put on their profile to help you figure out whether its your old friend.

Facebook is probably more helpful in reuniting with old classmates in general. They have different groups you can join. They have school groups from high school, or college that you can join, which makes it easier to re-connect with plenty of old friends from school. If you're trying to reunite with multiple friends from school, then you might want to use facebook. Since most members on facebook join a group from previous schools they've attend.

If social networks still are a no-go, you still have a few more ways to find lost friends online. Go to a site called pipl, which will search for this person using social networks, public addresses, or any other information publishes online from this person. Just type in their full name. It helps typing in the area where they're from as well. You can use a site called 123people when trying to find old friends online as well. These sites are free to use. Finding old friends can be done free and effectively with just the search of a name.

If I only saw this or any similiar post when I began a search for a friend of mine that moved to united states. I am sure I will save a lot of my time...
Before considering to look for him online I tried everything (I tried to find his number in phonebooks, I asked my cousins from usa to get any possible trace related to him, I even tried through one of the agencies for locating people all around the world...) So I was not wasting only my time but money too...
I was desperate, a lot of wasted effort...

A few months earlier I've heard for a site called WAATP. I can't describe how happy I was when I managed to find his phone number there. Now I feel like an obligation to recommend this site to people with the same problems. For me a WAATP is a revolutionary service for finding more information about someone. It changed my live, I forgot to mention how that friend (more like a brother) was significant to me... When I found him I felt like a newborn.

Good luck to anyone who is facing the same problems as I did... Don't you ever loose your hope!
