A couple of years ago, there was a lot of pressure to get your social media presences started. People were rushing to Facebook and Twitter to start online conversations, and to LinkedIn to establish a professional online presence.
However, once people established their online presences, studies have shown that they will develop FOMO. This acronym stands for Fear of Missing Out. Fear of missing out on important news and updates. Common signs of FOMO are checking your Twitter feed and googling your own name.
A Solution to FOMO
A way to relieve this social media anxiety is to manage all your communications and online identities from a single platform.
Based out of Los Angeles, MyLife.com is a company that offers such approach.
According to the company’s site, MyLife.com operates a “people search engine” through which members can contact past co-workers, friends, and family members. MyLife‘s free dashboard provides you a one-stop overview of not only your social media presences, but also of who’s searching for you and where your public record can be found.
Here is short video providing you a quick overview:
According to company records, its database includes over 1.2 billion profiles, with 205 million profiles coming from the U.S. MyLife.com has accumulated its large database because the company has been around since 2002 (formerly known as Reunion.com) and has acquired large alumni and people database startups such as highschoolalumni.com, PlanetAlumni.com, and Wink.com. Also, the company has partnered with ZoomInfo.com to provide its members a larger pool of public records.
Take a grip on your FOMO with a people search engine.
