Most Powerful People Search Engine on Your iPhone

New Mobile Application for iPhone Provides Access to Anyone’s Complete Real-Time Social Media Profile for Business Meetings, Events, or Social Gatherings

San Francisco, CA – September 13, 2012 – TalentBin, the talent search engine that turbo-charges talent discovery across the web, today released Lookup, a free people search application for iPhone. Based on TalentBin’s people search engine technology widely used by corporate recruiters and hiring managers, Lookup allows consumers and business users to instantly look up and review publicly available online information about friends, colleagues, and business contacts in a single, easy-to-navigate social profile. With Lookup, users can discover more about the people they interact with on a daily basis or quickly learn about the professional and social interests of new contacts – based on timely and relevant online activity across social networks and online communities.

“A complete social profile is like a personality – it is inherently multi-layered and reveals the true essence of a person. Looking at someone’s social media activity on a single site, like LinkedIn, for instance, only portrays a limited view of a person’s online personality. And digging through dozens of Google results is really tough on a mobile device,” explained Pete Kazanjy, co-founder of TalentBin. “Lookup brings all the layers together, providing a more genuine and comprehensive profile – spanning both business and personal interests.”

Lookup by TalentBin provides an intuitive interface, which neatly aggregates a contact’s professional and social interests, schooling, and resume culled from their online posts and public profiles. This includes quick links to individual social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Quora, Meetup, and even the US Patent Database. So whether you are on your way to a business meeting and need some more pertinent talking points, or you want to learn more about what piques someone’s interests, the Lookup app has you covered.

“Our people search engine is roaring among corporate recruiters, due to its ability to create dynamic web resumes with social activity that would be laborious to find on their own. So with Lookup, we wanted to extend this same power to help business professionals and consumers alike, who could benefit from quick access to full social profiles in their daily lives,” Kazanjy added.

  1. Fully appreciate it’s a free tool but less than blown away with the results. Searches returned were partial results at best. Many returned no results (on known public profiles)…. Pity.
