I suggest you ...

Detect notification emails from social networks

Notifications from Facebook come from ***@facebookmail.com. Rapportive should show information about the Facebook user who caused the notification, instead of about Facebook itself. If there's a filter that reads "NAME commented on a photo of you on Facebook" in the subject line, Rapportive should look for NAME instead of ***@face***.com. This should work with every other service, since their subjects are pre-formatted. Hope you implement this without the need to connect to every other social network, just a smart subject filter. Greetings from Mexico!

    We already support this for Twitter. Next time you get a notification email that someone is following you, or has sent you a DM, check the sidebar: we show you that person’s tweets and any other information we could find about them.

    Support for other networks is planned!

        Because if it is its not working for me and it would seem to be incredibly useful and popular. Thank you for the update

        Hi guys,

        This feature has been requested ages ago but doesn't seem to be moving. For me, Linkedin new connection confirmations are the ones where I could badly use this. All of these emails come in a standardised format, being sent from connections@linkedin.com, and with the email address of your new contact in an easily identifiable spot. So I can't imagine it should take your coders more than an hour or two to adopt what you've already accomplished for Twitter or Facebook, and extend that to Linkedin. I'd be grateful if you'd consider it! Best regards.

        Hi David, Twitter changes the format of its emails every so often to keep us on our toes, but we've just fixed it to support their latest notification emails (which now tell you when someone mentions you in a tweet as well!). If you refresh your Gmail tab, you should find it's working again.
