Swati Goyal , 13 October, 2010

Today, Search is one of the key ingredients in the Growing community websites / businesses. With increasing number of people joining communities it becomes tiring and cumbersome to hunt for a specific group of Users in thousands and thousands of Users on your website. As It is difficult for you to have enough time to wade through pages and pages of Information. Moreover, For a new User its a disaster to navigate through hell lot of pages.
    Imagine I am Admin of a Community based website and I want to make a
    search through my entire user database. Suppose, there are 50 million
    users at my website and I want to search a group of user, be it by zip
    code, keyword, or by some advanced options like Age, Birthday ,
    Location, etc. Or I want to send an Important mail to some selected
    users or group of users Or i want to export searched results.

    Imagine My users want to find there friends or companions or similar
    nationality people or find a best Match for them or search a people
    through location.

    Now the Questions arise

    <li>Would User Search be helpful for me?</li>
    The possible answer is I will  be requiring at the most urgency a
    Unique search option to find Users at my website.

    So, User Search becomes not only essential but a demanding
    tool. <strong> </strong>Search feature makes it easier to
    find targeted Users  based on filter by string which you enter. So
    I hope its sooner, we realize the fact, that in a world of infinite
    Information, finding, what we need and what best suit, will be one of
    the most valuable processes.
