Mon.ki allows you to discover the people that relate to the information you are looking at. Instead of making you sift through your social networks to identify the people relevant to a given topic, mon.ki acts as your “social compass” by automatically extracting information about the page you are looking at and guiding you to the right people – all in the context of your browser.
The private beta currently supports Twitter and can be downloaded from the Google Web Store for your Chrome browser.
From the article:
"...And Twitter integration is just the beginning. The company is adding support for Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn, too.
...With thousands of contacts spread out through multiple Google Apps accounts plus social and business networking services, finding who he knew where took a lot of effort. It’s the whole, “I have his info somewhere…” problem that he wanted to solve.
“We didn’t want another application or tool that gives you more management tasks,” said co-founder Delhaes...began thinking how you could build a personal search engine – not one for webpages or documents, but for people.
The resulting tech is deceptively simple, you install a browser extension (Chrome for now), and then, when you need information about the page you’re on, you click it to launch a pop-out sidebar detailing the Twitter profile info of the person or persons related to that page, as well as related tweets.
There’s still plenty of room for improvement, but the idea itself is promising."
BTW: Due the high interest Mon.ki have received they are activating users progressively.
