HoverMe is a browser extension that lets you quickly see the social profile of your Twitter friends when you hover your mouse over their name. It works with Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer but only supports Twitter right now. When you mouse over the name of a person you follow on Twitter, you’ll be able to see what other social networks they belong to and quickly go to their specific pages.

The extension gathers social profile data from any publicly available information that is available through search engines like Google and Bing. The social profile includes information from various networks such as Facebook, Delicious, Flickr, LinkedIn and even YouTube.

The biggest drawback of the app however, is that the person must be your friend on Twitter in order for you to see their profile. Developers claim that functionality will be added soon for Facebook friends.



  • See social profile of your friends by hovering over their name.
  • Includes information about all social networks.
  • Currently only works with your Twitter friends.
  • Supports Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
