Rapportive Browser Addon: Get Info about Email Sender

How many times have you recieved an Email from a legit but unknown person and un-knowingly you delete those Emails.  It happened to me many times and I’m sure it must have happened with you too at some point of time. Today we are going to learn about Rapportive which shows the social media profile and recent public social media activities of Email sender.

In recent days I hardly covered any browser extension apart from one which helps blogger in a way. For example last one which I covered was Chrome addon to select all friends on Facebook. Here I’m sharing about another useful browser extension known as Rapportive.

Rapportive is a web browser addon which support all popular browsers like chrome, Firefox & Safari. It gives you information about sender of the email and socially connected profile like Twitter, Flickr and various other social networking site.

The good thing is it will show a link to your other profiles like Google profile, Gravatar profile and so on.

Why I love Rapportive addon?

Everyday I receive more than 200 Emails on an average which consist of quote request, blogging help, interview request and so on.  Now getting more info about sender of the Email, right from email sidebar is really handy and useful. By looking into other social profile of sender of the Email, I can see is he is a scammer or a genuine person. This let me filter my Email instantly.

If you are a freelancer or a blogger or someone who receive lots of Email from real people every day, you should consider installing this free addon right away.

This addon is also available for Firefox & Safari.

    Nice way to check genuineness of the email sender. Analyzing the other persons social profiles will also let us know much about him/her. A much useful extension for professionals. Thanks for sharing.
