Wie o Wie (Whoozy) updates their services

It's more and more common to use search engines when trying to find out more about a person your about to meet or just met. It's almost common use that someone is 'Googled' before a job interview to find out what that person has been up to. Though not everywhere allowed, it's done by almost any employer.

Most employers will probably use Google. In Holland a lot of people use, next to Google, Wie-o-Wie.nl. This aggregation-engine looks through different websources. Wie-o-Wie (translated who-o-who, but internationally known as Whoozy) now updated their service with a redesign and new sources.

Wie o Wie now searches through a lot of different sources including Google, Hyves, Twitter and Facebook.

The site also offers a new service in which you can make a request to find a person who is not findable through all the services the search engine crawls through. If other searchers recognize the name they can help out. According to the site-owners they are aiming to become "the place for those of which you lost sight over the years".

Other changes are the options to better profile yourself, tags and comments. The changes will probably increase the websites visitors in the Netherlands (now about 40.000 uniques daily who search for 80.000 names). But to be honest: its a nice aggregation of results but far from complete.

WieoWie is also available in other countries then The Netherlands with the name "Whoozy".
