Search for friends
Written byFebruary 5, 2008
We’ve just released an update that revamps our entire friend-finding usage flow. Our previous design was modeled after AIM and Yahoo Messenger, in which you have to press "+" to access any friend-finding functionality. Many people didn’t get that design analogy.
After reading all your feedback, we’ve realized that people want "search." We sat down and refocused the Spokeo interface around search. Now you can see a prominent search bar on the very top. If you want to import your friends, just click on "import" next to the search bar.
Try it out! I hope these changes will make Spokeo even simpler to use than before.
Up until this week, we didn’t have a designer on hand, so the search bar isn’t pretty by any means. Raphael, our new artist, will be improving our graphics, as well as making our minimalist design even cleaner.
