kgb, the global telecommunications services company, today announced the launch in Europe and the U.S. of www.kgbpeople.com , a free people search engine that enables consumers to conduct an extremely comprehensive search for anyone—long lost relatives, friends, potential employees, or anyone else—on social networks (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter), search engines (e.g. Google, Yahoo, Bing) as well as numerous other sources including video sites. Using advanced searching and spidering techniques to find relevant information, www.kgbpeople.com also promises to bring consumers a one-stop destination for creating and managing their own online profile in an era when social media and the Web have made reputation management more difficult than ever.
”With www.kgbpeople.com, one can, within seconds, see the complete Internet profile of just about anyone, including themselves,” said Trevor Saadi, Head of Online Business at kgb. kgbpeople also gives consumers the opportunity to edit the information that is returned by creating a profile and commenting on each result."
Saadi added: “For consumers, kgbpeople should prove particularly useful in instances where online information that others may see about them is wrong, outdated, or about someone else entirely. Consumers using kgbpeople can set alerts so that they receive an email whenever their name comes up on a long list of Web sites, search engines, and social media sites. Consumers can also set up personal profiles that enable them to refute information that may be wrong or damaging to their reputations. In an era where reputation management is increasingly difficult, kgbpeople can help consumers protect themselves, and respond quickly to misinformation online.”
