FaceBook Now Allowing Open Registration

TechCrunch has announced today that the popular social network site FaceBook is allowing open registration. FaceBook contains millions of user profiles and people listings.

Skip tracers, private investigators and background research professionals will now have a valuable new search tool, in addition to MySpace and other social network sites, for doing people searches, background searches and pre-employment screening.

According to TechCrunch, Facebook has added a host of new privacy features for people, including:

• Block other users in specific networks from searching for his or her name.

• Prevent people in those networks from messaging, poking and adding him or her as a friend.

• Control whether his or her profile picture shows up in search results.

You can visit the FaceBook site at FaceBook.
