Gist, a social networking tool that works through email, today announced a Google Apps Gadget for Gmail.
Email, the very first form of internet communication is ironically the last bastion of privacy in a time when everything you send out into the world wide web suddenly belongs to someone else, but Gist has been working hard to change that.
Gist works through an add-on for Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes or through an iPhone app. Gist hopes to reach a much wider audience by adding Gmail support.
As the video shows, you can click on people’s names in the ‘To’ or ‘Cc’ field in an email and using Gist’s “auto-magic” searching technology, see images and information about that person and the company they work for.
