Xoopit released the first product to bring the power of the social web to email by combining the benefits of social networks and media management within email environments. Xoopit finds the pictures, videos, and files buried in webmail’s gigabytes of free storage, and allows users to share, comment, and post them to their contacts on other social networks and blogs. The product was released in private beta with initial client support for Google’s Gmail and automatically imports shared media from the top photo and video sharing networks such as YouTube, Flickr, Kodak, Shutterfly, and Picasaweb.
The Xoopit beta is available as a Gmail plugin for FireFox, on iGoogle, and on the web. Over time, the company plans to expand its offerings to the top web mail systems including Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, AOL and the social networks.
