Rainmaker: House Social Media Contacts In One Place

September 29th, 2010

We all rely on the address books embedded in our phones, but we know full contact info for each of our friends is available on Facebook and Gmail. Cell phone numbers, work phone numbers and email addresses are available and updated.

The web app Rainmaker allows users to pull their contacts across social networks and create a singular address book. Sign up for the service, grant Rainmaker limited access to your Gmail, Twitter or Facebook accounts, select your friends and import them. That said, the service is completely free to try.

There are a few hoops to jump through in order to get started. For example, the process of allowing your social networking accounts to communicate with Rainmaker requires a few more clicks than ideal. We’re also not entirely sure all of the features incorporated are necessary. Plus, users are limited to 25 contacts under a free account, and then users have to purchase credits and pay $0.25 for each additional contact to add.
