Last week, ZoomInfo launched a people search engine, with profiles of more than 25 million people. If you have even a minimal presence on the web, it’s quite likely ZoomInfo has built a profile about you, which is free for anyone to see. The profiles contain information about your educational background, current and previous employers and other details. For a system that’s been built entirely using computers, the profiles seem remarkably complete in most cases.
Today’s SearchDay article, Searching for People with ZoomInfo, looks at ZoomInfo and the kinds of things that it reveals about people. A longer version for Search Engine Watch members describes how to create your own ZoomInfo profile, or edit or delete information in your existing profile, if the company has already created one about you.
