Rapportive, A Gmail Plugin

My Rapportive Profile
I am absolutely enthralled with Rapportive, a Gmail add-on that replaces the typical Adsense sidebar with information about the person you are emailing.

The information that Rapportive pulls is from social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. If you have an account on one of these sites Rapportive will display your profile image, latest status update, and links to your blog or other web content that you have created.

There are a lot of people I communicate with regularly that I have never met. Being able to see a picture of them while I am typing up an email to them makes email a little more personal. Give it a try!
