I came across this exciting tool which we can use in our daily sourcing life(I have already started).Let’s make this Wednesday a learning day 🙂 Here you go!!
Connect6° is actually two services in one: PeopleDiscovery and PeopleSearch. PeopleDiscovery is a browser extension, currently available for Chrome, and PeopleSearch is a search engine to help you find business prospects and job candidates, based on keywords embedded within their social profiles.
Although some of us already using tools like 360 Degree and Vibe, which is almost similar to Connect6°. But Connect6° is much upgraded version with much more added functionality like asking for contact information which is great (still figuring out the outcome). This tool gives better result on Linkedin, Twitter and Gmail.
Download from Google Chrome Web store using below link
NOTE: After you download PeopleDiscovery, you may need to refresh your browser to activate the Connect6° hover beacons. Once activated you should see small six degree icons (6°) appear next to unique identifiers (e.g., Twitter handles, email addresses) on most web pages. Just hover over the icons and the person’s profile appears in a sidebar to the right of your screen.
We can also use their search engine using below link, by registering yourself .Boolean search will also work in this. That’s really nice.
It’s time to hover and discover. Feel free to reach out for more information.
