Spock.com - The Latest People Search Engine

I found Spock quite by accident , that is to say I stumbled upon it. For anyone that has not heard of Spock.com before,it is not the latest Star Trek related web site. It is a people search engine. Spock is easy to use and overall a fun interesting concept. Like any other search bar, you simply have to type in the desired name you wish to search for and click on search. Spock will then show you any web sites, social networks, pictures, or blogs that it finds associated with the name you entered. When I was testing it I did not know what to type in at first so I simply went for a search on Jessica Alba, what I got for my time was no less than ten additional links pertaining to my search and forty pictures. This was getting to be fun.



Spock is not designed solely for the well known public figures though. Anyone over the age of 13 can sign up for a free membership. Another great thing about Spock is that users can search for a persons name or just search a 'tag' word. The tags can be added by the person or by other Spock members. Members are allowed to voice opinions and have some control over pictures and tags associated with a person through a voting system that Spock has implemented. Although it is not technically classified as a social network, it does also have a messaging system implemented as well and as a blogger I do see potential for using Spock as a networking tool just as many people would Facebook. I myself had much fun just doing random searches using tags and I am going to list a few of them below. I am sure everyone here can come up with some rather interesting ones as well and I would love to hear about any really good ones you find.

I feel confident that Spock.com will be a huge success in the future and I urge everyone to stop in, join and search, whether you are searching for a particular person or for random tags to see what comes up, I believe you will be as impressed as I was.

Αn intereѕtіng dіscussiοn is worth comment.

There's no doubt that that you should publish more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people do not discuss such subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!
