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.
