Can you X-Ray for profiles on LinkedIn, XING, Facebook, Instagram, Github, Stackoverflow, Meetup, Behance, Quora, Slack, Discord, Snapchat, VK, Slideshare, CrunchBase, etc.? There is a simple way to find out.
Public profiles uniformly have members’ names in the page titles. Pick a common name like Jim Smith or Mary Jones, use it with the intitle: operator and combine with site:<site.com>. If you see profiles in the results, X-Ray is on. That’s it!
site:Meetup.com intitle:”jim smith” (uh-oh – previously public Meetup profiles went down)
Additionally, you can examine the resulting profile pages for common structure such as URLs, titles, and standard wording and derive a precise X-Ray template. Keep in mind that sites shift – URLs, page titles, and common wording change, and previously X-Rayable sites may become private.
