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!
Rapportive should scan the email and check if there are some other email addresses mentioned in it. Like if I get an email from facebook that a friend has posted on my wall. rapportive should show me details of that friend instead of info of auto email generator.
e.g. when I read an e-mail about a twitter reply or follow rapportive should look that person up and do it's magick.
Basically when I get a notification email from Facebook that I received a new message, I'd like Rapportive to grab the Facebook user sending me the message as opposed to just using the email Facebook sends the notification from.
rapportive is great, but i still want to see someone's website/twitter bio when i get an email that they're following me so i can decide whether or not to follow them back without clicking through to their profile
Lot's of gmail messages are Facebook notifications. In this cases, the program should analyse the original FB member who posted the FB comment.
There are lots of email from Twitter, FB, LinkedIn etc. showing new peers / followers / invitations / events. Could Rapportive just dig inside and show the related person, instead of the no-reply@some-SNS.com profile ?
An email from email@example.com (e.g. when someone confirms a LinkedIn connection request) returns information about Maria Mastronunzio (?!?!?!)
It would be awesome if Rapportive read into my email to see who just confirmed connection and brought their profile up!
The idea is simple. I get messages from Facebook reminding me of a Facebook Mail in my Inbox from a certain friend. It would be great if you could identify the sender of this Facebook message and display him with his profile data.
In this case provide info on person x instead of twitter-generated email sender address. Custom parsers for these popular service emails should be a good idea, to ensure quality of parsed info.
When I have for example "new message" notifications from facebook, i'd love for raportive to show me info on that person instead of "we can't find that person"
Can Rapportive show me the linkedin profile for the user who sent me a linkedin message rather than try to search for the profile for 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
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

are the other biggest networks implemented yet? IE: facebook, linkedin, google plus, etc?
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 email@example.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.

This isn't working for me.

Could you support this for emails from google voice as well?
