The 123People search seems to be at least a bit more Europe oriented. The search interface is very simple: just indicate the full name and the search realm.
Search for myself does give good results. The pictures found are fairly correct, they are of me, published by me or my name appears on the web-page of the image (worst results). No email addresses of phone numbers of me or found, the service could improve here. There are on results from Amazon, which could be better as well (look in the books).
The weblinks are correct, although not always relevant. There should be a difference between profile pages and general web-pages. The blogs section is not very good. What is the difference with a generic web-page? And what is a biography-page? It does not give good results. I like the tag-cloud, although it could be better (the ‘tinyurl’ tag is now very large). A list of my profiles on social network is complete and shows some doubles. It should add other networks as well. No video’s can be found by me, nor my Twitter account. The list of documents found is correct
All in all this service could be smarter, it should use the usernames found on the web. I like the categorization of information found. Things however remain a black box. It is unclear where some information comes from, nor can one add other information sources. It should be an intelligent mix of information provided by me and found on the web.
A problem appears when you search for someone, who does not have a unique name. How should I zoom in?
