There used to be a time when nosy people would sit by the front window, half hidden from sight and looking out at what was going on outside, trying to figure out if the neighbors were fighting or if they got something new and the practice was generally looked down upon. Bringing that to the present we now have a new sort of snoop, someone that is able to find out more information about more people than the person that sat at the front window could have ever hoped to find out. They use the power of the Internet to look up personal information about their neighbors and friends, to be honest they just look up information on anything they want to because that information is on the Internet in the form of public records. But what kind of things could you hope to look up online and just how personal can you get with that information.
Well there are software programs out there than lump together all the best resources for information digging and you can find them everywhere for sale. The first thing that you will want to do is to open the program and do a search for things such as tax records and land sale records. This will give you some great information such as, how much did your neighbor pay for his house and how much are their taxes? You could also do searches for criminal records in your area as well as finding out a list of the most wanted felons in your state. You can look up phone numbers and addresses of old friends and even do reverse phone number lookups to see who it was that just tried to call you. The list of what you can do goes on and on.
So pick up a copy of the latest detective software to see what you can find out about your friends and neighbors. You will also be surprised to find out what there is about you on the Internet and you can even have some of it removed from the online records if you know where to ask. Yes, the snoop has gone high-tech and isn't going back anytime soon.
