Spokeo Info-Bubble RIP
Written byMay 23, 2011
You sometimes have to part with the ones you love. Such is the case with the Spokeo Info-Bubble. You may remember the Info-Bubble as the friendly/annoying window that would pop up during your name searches with a small "sneak-preview" of sorts with some of the information included in the full report.
"Here’s just some of the information we have on the person you’ve searched!," he’d exclaim. "Would you like to see more, madame?" (so polite!).
"Yes, I would. I’d like to see the full report. And don’t call me madame. My name is Gary."
He was a good kid with good intentions, but unfortunately he got in the way. Most of our users like Gary would end up clicking to see the full report anyway, no matter how friendly he was, and that’s understandable. You come to Spokeo expecting to find information, and you expect to get that information in a timely fashion. So it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to bid adieu to Info-Bubble. We think you’ll agree that this change is for the best. You are now one-step closer to finding the person you’ve been looking for.
