Learn more about who is Gmail-ing you with Rapportive

Those of you who use Gmail may be interested in this plug-in I just learned about.

Folks, there’s a browser add-on (aka “plug-in”) that replaces the ads in Gmail with some pretty cool info about the Senders of the email in your Inbox. It’s available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari 5, RockMelt, Flock, and Mailplane (a standalone Gmail application for Mac). It’s called Rapportive, and I found it due to some rave reviews.

What is Rapportive?

“Rapportive shows you everything about your contacts right inside your inbox. You can immediately see what people look like, where they’re based, and what they do. You can establish rapport by mentioning shared interests. You can grow your network by connecting on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and more. And you can record thoughts for later by leaving notes. Imagine relationship management built into your email. For free.”
