Advanced contact search

I just thinking to a better search as advanced search wich makes people able to find people with select more items like; Phone number, Age, Languages (it needs to makes users add more language on their profile), and something more.

Also for privacy users most be able to define which of these items can be use when someone search them.

I think it can be use on other version of Skype like deskop version too.

Skype is about having meaningful conversations with people close to you: family, friends, colleagues. We want to make it easy to connect to those you know while at the same time not exposing you to unwanted contact requests. Right now we think that you should be able to find your contacts via their email address and there is no need for a more advance search as you describe it. If you are interested in exchange on certain topics (language exchange, travelling etc.) your chances are much higher if you start at an online special interest community and exchange Skype contact details later on after you've made contact. Please reply in a comment to this idea if you think there are good reasons we haven't thought of to add a more advance search.

when looking for people with common names it can be quite a challenge to look one by one through thousands of people, at least adding a country filter would help
