A couple months back we launched a very popular feature allowing folks to search for a contacts social connections on the web.
This has and continues to work great but we are always looking at ways to enhance features at BatchBook and we think the Flowtown integration does just that.
Flowtown is able to take an email address and turn that into a full social profile. They provide very targeted results based on email address which in most cases provides more accurate results than just a name based search as email addresses are unique. Please note you must have a Flowtown account for this to work and of course we highly recommend you get one if you do not already. They are a fantastic service.
The way the integration works is to head the to Sync & Integrations tab and add a new service. You will see Flowtown as an option and after clicking it you will be asked for your Flowtown account name and API key. Your API key is located in your Flowtown account under: Settings -> My Info.
Once enabled the process is very similar to the existing search social network button. Since the results are exact matches you do not have to go through the step of actually choosing the relevant profile. Just click the Search Social Network button and if results are found we will automatically add them to the Social Media SuperTag all in one step:
As an added bonus the contact information is also added to your Flowtown account. We love it and hope you will as well.
Be sure to check out our integration page. We put together a short screencast so you can see the integration in action.
