Xobni Fun Facts

Xobni’s fun facts feature is a cool way to discover and share statistics about your email patterns with the people you email regularly.

Occasionally users ask us if Xobni automatically sends emails to contacts without permission. We want to assure you that this is not the case.

Immediately after installation, Xobni displays fun facts while it is preparing your email index. A ‘Click to Send’ button appears at the bottom of each fun fact. When a user wants to share a fun fact with the contact that is the subject of the fact, they can click the “Click to Send” button. You must click the ‘Click to Send’ button for an email to be sent. Xobni does NOT send emails automatically and if the button is not clicked the screen will simply continue to the next fun fact without sending an email.

Should you decide to share one of these facts, Xobni also provides the option to edit and personalize the message before sending. Just click the ‘edit message’ button.

Xobni fun facts can be discovered at anytime by clicking the “share fun facts” menu item in the options menu.

Xobni takes user and data privacy seriously. Extensive details regarding data privacy can be found in our privacy policy and in various FAQ entries on the Xobni web site. We proactively address privacy concerns so that everyone can comfortably and happily continue using Xobni to combat email overload.

Xobni Closes $7 Million Series B Financing – Bring on 2009!

This past year has been very exciting for Xobni and we expect 2009 to be even better.

During 2008, we introduced Xobni to the world. We saw our product downloaded more than 1.5 million times and evolve into an application deployed by Fortune 500 enterprises. We also struck some key partnerships to help bring more of the Web into your inbox, making it easier to manage your relationships and connections.

Our goal for 2009 is to continue to expand our business and scale to meet the needs of our growing user base. Specifically, we plan to continue improvements to the quality of our product, focus on our premium business, and address the growing interest from our enterprise customer base. To achieve these goals, we set out for more funds and recently completed a $7 million Series B financing where Cisco Systems has joined our existing investors – Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital, Baseline Ventures, and Atomico – in supporting us in our vision for Xobni.

Here is the press release with details (LINK) and below are some of our highlights from 2008:

Happy New Years to everyone. Here’s to a great 2009!
