Social Integration Platform Threadsy Nets $3 Million B Round

Threadsy is a San Francisco startup that wants to simplify your social web life. A recent $3 million B round should help them do just that.

Social communications startup Threadsy, which produces a social networking client by the same name, has secured second-round funding to the tune of $3 million, according to an SEC filing. Threadsy, based in San Francsico, received $3.3 million in series A investment in March of 2008, bringing its total funding north of $6 million.

There is no word yet as to the investors’ identities, but in all likelihood the previous investors in Threadsy, which include August Capital of Menlo Park and Michael Dearing’s Harrison Metal Capital of Palo Alto, also had a hand in this round.

Threadsy’s service is targeted at simplifying users’ consumption of online communication by integrating e-mail and social networking updates into a single, easy-to-access interface. Competing companies in the space include Inbox2, MailSuite, and Silentale, all of which offer an “all-in-one” social web experience.

Platforms such as Threadsy will become increasingly significant as more markets develop in the social realm. As newer social networking / social media phenomena like check-ins and daily deals continue to grow, a simplified interface linking users’ multiple accounts has increased value.

Although it’s too early for specifics from Threadsy’s CEO Rob Goldman, formerly of eBay and Shopping.com, it’s certain that Threadsy will continually be presented with opportunities to grow its reach as the era of social networks proliferates.
