Detailed Description

Update

Wink is a people search engine that searches for profiles across the Web.

Wink began in 2004 as a social search engine to use input from other people to influence the relevance of Web pages. But in 2006 Wink changed directions to become a people search engine. At the time there were numerous growing social networks and other places online with limited ability to search. Serving those looking to find old friends or anyone with an active online life, Wink searches about one billion profiles across popular social networks and other destinations.

Wink merged with Reunion.com in November, 2008.
