When was the last time you looked at someone’s social media profile before making a business deal or before a meeting? If you are someone who tries to know more about a person from their social media profile, then you are not alone.
Welcome to the 21st century, where our social media profiles can often act as our resumes. Today I’m not going to talk about how to maintain an outstanding social media profile, rather I will talk about a common pain point most of us face.
How often do you struggle to find a certain social media profile for a certain email address?
As an end user, it matters to me a lot. Be it an email I receive from a stranger, or a comment added on my blog. If I manage to find the social media profiles behind those emails, it will be easier for me to gauge the authenticity of that person.
The problem is, there are not many options available that let me discover the social media profiles connected with an email.
Well, if you are in the same shoes as me, today I have an interesting tool for you.
This tool comes in the form of a Chrome extension, and if you don’t install it, you’ll never know how awesome it is.
ManyContacts Chrome Extension: Unveils Social Media Profiles Behind Any Email Address
While I’m giving you this demo, install it on your Chrome browser while reading this guide and try it out yourself.
Once you have installed the ManyContacts addon, head over to your email inbox on Chrome. You can also go to your blog comment moderation section, or any web page where you can find an email address.
See the below screenshot to see it in action:
As I said earlier, the ManyContacts Chrome extension works on any open web page. All you need to do is click on the ManyContacts icon to automatically pick up the emails on the page & show you the social media profiles behind those email addresses.
This nifty extension is very useful for website owners & bloggers.
Let’s say you get a comment on your blog that requires an urgent response, you can find the social media profile of the commenter & directly reply to your reader’s query on Twitter, Facebook, or any other social media profile.
This trick might not work 100% time, but it’s a free addon that could help you become more social with people who really matter.
Here is one tip for you: If you have been interacting with people online over email, install this extension & find their social media profile.
Connect with those users on their social media profile (make sure it’s appropriate) & you will foster a better relationship in no time.
