I am always trying out new apps to make my recruiting desk more efficient.  The recent purchase of Rapportive by Linkedin made me finally try the app that I have been reading about and I am sure glad I did.  I thought it sounded like Xobni and it is but for Gmail.

With easy set up (like most Gmail apps) Rapportive takes your email contacts and instantly displays what they are doing in the social media space.   Not only does it give me the social info but also phone numbers and websites…nice!  And even better is the sidebar replaces Google contextual ads!

I am now using Rapportive every day when contacting colleagues, candidates, and clients.  Whenever I open an email I get great info on the contact in one quick place!  Also, in case you are worried, Rapportive doesn’t have access to your password in Gmail, but it does access the contents of your email in order to build the service to you.  This may make you nervous, but so far for me all has been good.  And not just me, LifeHacker and TechCrunch love them too.

Let me know how it works for you in the comments below….

About 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.

Viagra is the most famous ‘love pill’ in the world, but it is not the only option for you. The majority of men who tried both brand and generic pills state that Cialis (the most famous and top-quality generic drug) works better. It is up to you to decide whether you choose brand pills or buy Cialis, but ED patients state that:
Now it is possible to avoid awkward publicity if you buy Cialis online in our reliable web pharmacy. To purchase Cialis online simply place your order, use your credit card to pay for your pills, receive your drug per post in a decent package and start your way to perfect men’s health!
