If I have an email address, what service can I use to get more information about the user?

I remember seeing an API that takes an email address and gives you the full name, and also social profiles. They had a large database of such mappings.

Using email on social media you can have all personal info. store on that particular service, also using some intelligent services you can have other Friends, Followers, Connection from your network. Although you must have to enter you password at first, and when you allow them they will fetch this type of data. –  Hignesh Hirani Sep 13 '12 at 20:54
I'm obviously late to the party for an old question, but sounds like you're looking for FullContact (disclosure: my company). Not exactly a fit for the 'Web Applications' board, so maybe that's why they closed it out. Good luck! –  LloydDobbler Mar 25 at 20:47

Try Pipl.

We dive into the deep web to bring you results you won't find in any other search engine then we use a powerful identity resolution engine to link those seemingly disparate results into a set of meaningful profiles so you can easily find the person you are looking for.
