It may seem that checkers don’t help a lot and bring no valuable info. Well, there’s an account on 7cups, so what? But it’s not this simple. Let us explain this a bit.
When you register an account (not a sock puppet) in some service, most of the times, you do it for a reason, directly associated to the nature of that service. Let’s take that 7cups for example.
If it’s your first encounter with this resource, it’s time to turn to the good old Google search. Ok, ‘7 Cups is a website which provides online therapy and free support to people experiencing emotional distress by connecting them with trained listeners. The listener, trained in active listening, interacts with the person seeking help via an anonymous and confidential chat.’
What’s our first thought if we see that a person has an account on such resource? Right, this person may be seeking help (for a reason) or he may be providing help to others. You may make your own further conclusions, we’re not forcing anything, but that’s the point, you’ll definitely make some conclusions.
Or let’s take Venmo as another example. ‘Venmo is a mobile payment service owned by PayPal. Venmo account holders can transfer funds to others via a mobile phone app; both the sender and receiver have to live in the U.S.’
In this case, as we see it, there’s no special thing about this service but there’s location info – U.S. only. So you might have narrowed down your search. The same goes on with other sources.
By the way, in the List of requests window in Lampyre for each request there’s a small description and info on the results you may get. To open this window go to Windows -> List of Requests or just choose Standard Mode when you open Lampyre. You can also choose exactly which requests to launch so not to launch all of them as it is done in the Lampyrise window.
Now we hope you see the importance of checkers. So don’t forget about them, as the little info they provide is really better than nothing. Even no account at some service may be a clue to something ;-)
By the way, most of the times, it’s useful to analyze the existence or non-existence of accounts in all sources at the same time by launching all checkers together. You’ll be able to see the whole picture and then add even more context. Analysis means the world to us!
