Rapportive Helps You Figure Our Someone's Real Email Address

If you would like to get in touch with someone at a specific company, but don't have their email address, Rapportive can help. Rather than blindly mailing a number of potential email addresses, the tool helps you identify if a particular email address exists on a domain or not by its presence in social media. 

To make it work, you must create a list of potential email addresses that a subject might have, such as mark@facebook.com, zuck@facebook.com, etc. and then run them through the system. The tool will identity the email address and see if it points to a real social media profile. So for example, if zuck@facebook.com pulls up Mark Zuckerberg's actual Facebook profile (be sure to see if the account looks real or not), then you probably have the right email address.
