How to Find Somebody's Email Address Using soc.net-people

By

A Last Resort

After you have gone to great lengths trying to find somebody's email address — there's no way to ask ask for it personally, you've searched the Web, you've turned your house and emails upside down, you've even set up a Web site — without success, you can turn to a last resort: soc.net-people.

Soc.net-people is a Usenet newsgroup where you can ask for help locating somebody you believe to have an email address (or another form of online presence).

Find Somebody's Email Address Using soc.net-people

To look for somebody's email address with the help of soc.net-people:

  • Post a message to soc.net-people asking for help.
  • Include as much detail (both relevant and seemingly irrelevant) as possible that can serve as a hint for others knowing (somebody who knows) the person.
  • Be sure to include a valid email address by which you can be reached. Even if somebody knows the address of the person you are looking for, they'll not post it in plain to Usenet.

Good luck!
