Quick Tip: Download ‘Rapportive’

by J. Money on February 25, 2013

If you like to know who you’re emailing with all the time, download Rapportive and it’ll show you in the sidebar every time you open up an email in Gmail :)

It’s kinda freaky actually. And sorta feels like stalking, but then when you realize others are seeing *your stuff* too it makes you feel better, haha… And that’s ANOTHER reason to download it actually – so you have control of what others are seeing of your accounts too!! The more you have connected through Gmail, the more that will show up when people are looking (not that everyone uses Rapportive, of course). It’s a great way to connect to those you like.

Oh, also?! It gets rid of all those ads in the sidebar too! You’re replacing junk with something informative :) Been using it for about a month now and really pleased at how it’s going… I wish I had done it a year ago when I first heard about it! It’s fun to see who those random people are on the other end sending you stuff, haha…

You can find it here: http://rapportive.com

And this is what it looks like:

How smart is rapportive? I manage three different gmail accounts (some for my personal blogs and some professional). Is it possible to only link one gmail account to Rapportive and keep the other ones disabled?

I think the way it works is that each of your gmail accounts will have its own Rapportive sidebar – so if you’re emailing from one, the person on the other side will see those accounts attached to only that email. At least I’m pretty sure how that works, they could be a lot smarter ;) I would log into each account of yours and then create an email so you can see your own Rapportive on the right, and then see what pops up. You can then edit it all right there, then log out and log in to your other accounts and repeat the process. Or if you want to email me from all 3 I can tell you what it’s showing too :) j @ budgets are sexy . com

I use Rapportive, very useful and it removes Google ads by useful content :)

Another great GMail addons are BrandMyMail ( http://brandmymail.com ) and YesWare ( http://yesware.com )
