Identify - a Firefox Extension: Explore online profiles

Bookmark and Share

We all have different profiles across multiple social websites or online social service providers. This could be the case for anyone who has presence on the web.

So if you visit profile of someone, say at http://twitter.com/scimandar then how will your find how many active profiles pertaining to my identity are available on the web which are either searchable or publicly visible. One possible way is to go through web and try to find possible public profiles. I would prefer another way which I am going to explain it today.

So lets get back to my twitter profile at http://twitter.com/scimandar. You need to have Firefox 3.0 installed on your machine. Now Get Identify - Firefox Extension and install it. After Firefox browser restart go to http://twitter.com/scimandar profile and press “Alt+i” on your keyboard. And voila! you will see different social public profiles pertaining to me.
