MyLife (or MyLife.com) is an American information brokerage founded by Jeffrey Tinsley in 2002 as Reunion.com. In addition to that name, it previously conducted business as Wink.com. MyLife gathers personal information through public records and other sources to automatically generate a “MyLife Public Page” for each person, described by MyLife as a “complete Wikipedia-like biography on every American.” A MyLife Public Page can list a wide variety of personal information, including an individual's age, past and current home addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, employers, education, photographs, relatives, political affiliations, a mini biography and a personal review section which encourages other MyLife members to rate each other. MyLife claims to have over 225 million Public Pages with information about almost everyone in America, 18 years old and over. According to MyLife, a Public Page can only be edited or removed if it is “claimed”, a process that involves registering with the website and providing a credit card number or a government-issued photo ID. The site also allows people to search for any person in the United States, read their auto-generated public page, and review them.

In 2007, according to a company press release, MyLife.com received $25 Million in venture funding from Oak Investment Partners. The company changed its name from Reunion.com to MyLife.com after merging with the search engine company, Wink, in the fall of 2008. According to Tinsley, the company's 2008 revenue was estimated at 52 million dollars with 90% of the firm's revenue coming from paid subscriptions. As of 2009, the company had acquired several smaller companies including: Planet Alumni, GoodContacts, HighSchoolAlumni, MyAddressBook.com. That year, Ancestry.com reported it had begun a data sharing partnership with MyLife. In August 2007, the company described its website as the 6th most popular social networking site with 28 million users while a 2008 article in the LA Times criticized the company's “aggressive marketing approach.” In February 2009 ComScore reported the company's website as having 18.2 million unique visitors that month and Tech Crunch characterized it as the 4th largest social networking website for January 2009.
