Founded in July of 2010, KGB People is a relatively new online tool. The site covers a lot of ground with each search, tapping into the databases listed under Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube and more. Little has changed in KGB People’s short life so far, the focus remains on helping users gather extensive information that is readily available on the internet.
KGB People is unique in the way it searches specific resources that are more likely to have information about individuals. Of course any standard search engine can serve a similar purpose, but the problem is the results must be sifted through to find the right information. KGB People helps refine the search by placing a focus on finding people rather than everything under the sun.
The appealing blue color scheme of KGB People highlights the site well. Varying blue tones help users find the main navigation menu and search bar, which is prominently displayed at the center of the homepage. A casual silhouette of various people help explain at a glance what the site is all about.
Registration is not required to perform a search on KGB People. However, if a user wants to get the most benefit out of the site, there is a white “Sign Up” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. The registration process is relatively quick and requires only a first and last name, email address, and password. After checking the general conditions check box, the user can click the blue “Register” button to complete the process.
One of the best parts of using KGB People is the cost. The site is accessible for free, an account is not required. Those who choose to create a KGB People account can also do so for free. The process is quick and painless, and full access is given. There is no premium paid account offered at this time, with no indication that the free status will change anytime soon. Logically, this seems reasonable considering that the search function on KGB People is something many other search engines already do for free.
Regular internet users who are concerned about their online reputation should turn to KGB People first before paying for a service. The search is free and can help unearth information the user may not have been aware was posted for all to see. When creating an account, users can also post various pieces of information they find about themselves with a comment to help set the record straight or elaborate, depending on the situation. KGB People can’t necessarily change the user’s online reputation, but it can give them a way to learn where they stand and give a little personal comment about it.
