If you want that information the best (and easiest) way is to simply ask them for it.

lol...If i dont have any contact with them then how can i ask to them ?
i will search randomly by name only like Facebook ,and i want possible matches below.

If you don't have any contact, it means that they are not your customers. It then resorts to gathering information on people who do not necessary want you to gather their informations.

I certainly hope that you can't scrape information like this from those sites - data protection regulations would expressly forbid them from disseminating this data without the owner's permission.

So what should be the approch for following scenario

There is a need to automate the process where advisor will update the customer name in textbox and on a click of a button a search on all the possible websites on customer's demographic details can take place and a probable match thrown for ascertaining if it is a correct match or not
Each site has it's own API, possibly, which you would have to write code to interact with.

For Facebook,[^]
For LinkedIn Home | LinkedIn Developer Network[^]
For Twitter, Twitter Developers[^]

Etc, etc.

It is possible someone has finally written a wrapper to make calling all these sites easy so you may want to search for that first. Or, you could write one and probably make a lot of money. :)

The approach would be that it is probably not possible
