San Jose, California (PRWEB) June 8, 2010
ICONIX, Inc. the industry leader in visual email solutions, announced today that they have released the initial version of a service that brings Facebook content to email. The service, called myIconix, allows users to display their Facebook profile picture next to their messages in the inbox. Setup of myIconix takes just a few clicks and is enabled by Facebook Connect. Display of the pictures in email is enabled by an Iconix app that works with most major webmail programs. The myIconix service can be reached at my.iconix.com.
"This is our first release to address our users’ requests to allow personal pictures in the inbox, making it easier to find messages from friends," said Jeff Wilbur, vice-president of marketing at ICONIX. "Since Facebook is the focus of most users’ personal presence on the Internet, and nearly two-thirds of our users also use Facebook, it's natural for us to focus on bringing Facebook content into email. We look forward to releasing enhancements to this service over the coming months to further personalize and enhance users' email experience."
