Video: How to Search for your Username on over 600 Social Networks

The second video in our three part series demonstrates how to do a simple username search on KnowEm for your brand, product or personal username on the over 600 Social Networks we currently monitor in our database.

Since our inception, KnowEm has always offered a free search for the availability of your brand or username on hundreds of Social Media sites. As we’ve grown, so has our database of social networks, and today we’re proud to announce that has reached over 600!

We think it’s pretty easy to use – just enter a potential username (this has to be a name without spaces or punctuation, since it is often used as a vanity URL on the social websites, such as and click “Check It“. The initial overview results page will show where your name is available on 25 of the most popular networks, and by clicking on the “Check Over 500 More Social Networks” button you can continue on to search the entire KnowEm database of 600 sites by category, for free.  When your name is found available on a site, we also offer the link to register it on that particular social network.

This initial results page will also show you the availability of that name on 15 top level domain extensions, with the option to search over a hundred more domains, and it will search the entire USPTO trademark database for that name’s availability.

    Thank you Barry,

    It is far easier to have a single username for all your logins. Really helpful post 🙂
