KnowEm allows individuals and brands to ensure that they have claimed their favorite username or their brand’s name on over 350 social media services. Just type in your favorite username and KnowEm will check if it is still available on these sites.

Today, KnowEm announced the launch of a number of premium services aimed at small businesses and enterprises. For a one-time fee, KnowEm will create profiles for a brand or individual on over 150 social media sites. For a slightly higher fee, the company will also populate these profiles with your information.

In addition, KnowEm also announced that it has acquired FriendsCall.Me, a service that is quite similar to KnowEm and also aims to help brands to make sure that their names aren’t being used by squatters.

Is Your Name Available?

The basic free version of KnowEm makes it easy to find out if your favorite username is still available on the 350 social media services. Just type in your favorite username and KnowEm will check if your name is still available on these sites. Given how closely our online identities are often tied to one single username, it only makes sense to claim the same username on every site and to ensure that somebody else isn’t impersonating you. Other services that offer similar free features include Namechk (148 sites) and Usernamecheck.com (68 sites).

Premium Services

The new premium services extend KnowEm’s portfolio by giving businesses additional services for claiming and monitoring their brands. For users of the Corporate Edition ($349), KnowEm will create profiles on 150 social media sites and populate them with photos, bios and descriptions. A cheaper version of this services ($99) only includes the signup process, and users will have to populate their profiles by hand. For an additional $49 per month, KnowEm will also register your name or brand on new social media services as they launch.
