With social networking sites getting tons of heat for privacy issues, Spokeo People Search seems to be asking for it. Spokeo was originally set up as an Internet White Pages, but now seems to be crossing the line with their amount of accessible information.

When Spokeo was first created in 2006, the site’s format allowed users to access information on what social networking sites their e-mail contacts were on. Now, Spokeo People Search reveals much more. By entering a name, you can see e-mail addresses, Picasa images, an appearance description, and the number of people in their household!
