Social media just boomed in this 21st century among people. You could get someone’s whole history by just digging their social media accounts. So, finding an email address on social media is the right choice to make.

There are several social media platforms to get someone’s information but some Social Media are quite famous and user-friendly ones. Some of these are detailed below:

In Facebook

Facebook made it very easy to get someone’s information by providing the section called “About” on an account page. As always, some people may or may not include their email address in their bio.

If the email address isn’t mentioned on the account page, you can always try sending a message, ask them to get in touch with you in any way. Having some connect is better than nothing, right?

In Instagram

Likewise Facebook, Instagram bio has every detail about the person. Also, Instagram has a separate section in the bio for email, it’s like a favor for those who are all searching someone’s email address for business.

If you couldn’t able to find their email address, still it is better to know their name and other information about your targeted person.

In LinkedIn

For LinkedIn, you may need to connect with the person to see their personal information. Once you connected with the person in LinkedIn, go to their profile > click “Contact Info’, you may get their email address and other information in there.

In Twitter

If the email address isn’t in the person’s bio, you can use the Twitter Advanced Search option to find whether the person has ever mentioned their email address in previous tweets or anywhere else on their account. On the search results page, click “More Options” and select Advanced Search.

In the “Words” section, type keywords like “email”, “contact”, “outreach” etc. Some people might use symbols like @ and . for the words ‘at’ ad ‘dot’ to secure their information, so you can use those keywords too.

In the “From these accounts” section, type the user id of your targeted account.
