Connect6 Aims To Bridge The Web, Real Life Contacts

A new, Los Angeles-based Connect6 launched this week, with a new, Chrome browser extension which looks to bridge the web--and such sites as Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and other services--with LinkedIn-like information on potential contacts. The company's software discovers contacts online, and allows users to click on an icon to pull up important business details, like job title, employer, job skills, email address, phone number, and more. The company is aiming squarely at LinkedIn saying it is hoping to help people stop relying on LinkedIn's InMail feature to find contact information. Connect6 is headed by Vik Kashyap.
