"Two is Better Than One" Provides Highly Targeted People Search Results

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2008) - (, the premier online people search service that helps consumers quickly find and connect with anyone, anywhere, today announced the addition of "Two is Better Than One," an innovative search feature which enables consumers to track down any combination of family members, roommates, friends, neighbors or colleagues that have lived at the same address at one point in time. By narrowing down people search results based on two names, enables consumers to find people more easily, with minimal information.

Two is Better Than One allows consumers to enter two names into the search field -- the name of the person they're searching for and the name of someone that the person once lived with such as a roommate, spouse or family member. By allowing people to search with more data in their search query, can discard irrelevant information and return search results that closely match what a person is looking for. This simple people search feature eliminates the numerous results that appear from a query on a common name such as "John Smith" and the countless hours spent sifting through information to locate the right person.

For example, if a consumer is looking for "John Smith" or "Jane Doe" the search would likely return hundreds or thousands of results -- most of which aren't relevant. If the person searched for "John Smith and Jane Doe" the number of resulting matches would be significantly smaller and highly targeted. To further narrow down people search results, users can also enter an age or location with the two names such as "John Smith and Jane Doe, age 55" or "John and Jane in New York."

" is building upon its history of innovation to make it easier for friends and family to find and reconnect with each other," said Bryce Lane, president and COO of "By performing a search based on two names, people are able to quickly find the needle in the haystack -- whether it is an old roommate, colleague or family member. Never before has it been so easy for consumers to connect with someone from their past."

Two is Better Than One can be used to locate any pair of people that have lived together including spouses, parents and their children (now 18 and over), grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, roommates, friends, neighbors and colleagues. Try the Two is Better Than One people search for free at
