What can I say… I do love a free app!

This is a free tool that when enabled as a plugin/extension on Google Chrome, gives you the ability to view other social networks of the person that you are “hovering over”.


When hovering over Barack Obama’s profile link in Twitter you get to see links to everywhere else that there is a profile (down the right pane).


From there it is a simple click on any other social network to see their social presence.

To install the plugin:

  • Head over to http://www.360social.me/ and click the Chrome Icon
  • Once installed you need to restart your Chrome Browser
  • Then click the 360social icon down the right of your browser window
  • Once the pane opens (it will fade away when you do not have a mouse focused on it) you can hover your mouse over any direct link to a social profile and the magic will happen!

Try it out for yourself and see what you think.


  • They have indexed a lot of profiles and they seem to be matching up quite well.
  • Bear in mind that not everyones’ profiles will show all social networks as this seems to still be early doors with the product.

Do you know of any other plugins that are useful in sourcing/recruitment? Let us know with a comment below.
