Launched in private beta last May, was designed as a Google Chrome browser to help users discover valuable connections when on a website, calling itself a “social compass,” so that when you visit a site about the Paleo Diet, the extension shows you not only who is talking about the site, but allows you to tweet to liked minds or retweet those interactions from the sidebar without ever having to leave the site.

The company has announced their initial product is splitting into two separate but equal Chrome browser extensions, in the pursuite of the dream of “helping users find better information, products, and services with the help of their friends,” the company tells AGBeat. People Extension and Twitter Extension

The People Extension for Chrome eliminates the need to copy and paste contact info between accounts and networks. It is designed to consolidate contacts from across social networks and address books, accessing them from any web location. Integrations include Gmail, Yahoo Mail, hotmail, Salesforce,, CrunchBase, AngelList, and more.

The Twitter Extension for Chrome brings enhanced Twitter functionality to every page on the web. This extension shows on the sidebar what others have tweeted about the page you’re visiting, and allows you to interact directly with those tweets without having to leave the page – a big win for site owners.

The company says that splitting the extensions into two is an important step in their quest to help users find better information, products, and services with the help of their friends. They have created a patented technology that is at the core of what they call the first ever “consumer graph” that they assert is changing the landscape of social local commerce.
