The number of additional members of a finder can be indicated to the right of the owner's name. The names of additional members will appear when you hover your mouse over the number.

State

Indicates whether the finder is active (green background) or inactive (red background). Depending on the chosen data source, certain finders are intended to be run daily, either to retrieve the latest data (e.g. Google News) or to meet the quotas imposed by a data provider (e.g. LinkedIn).
