Power.com launched in August 2008 for Orkut users and publicly in November 2008. The service lets users log into multiple social networks simultaneously. It also lets users move content from one network to another easily, and contact people across all of their social networks.
The company was involved in a lawsuit with Facebook, in which Facebook accused Power.com of violating CAN-SPAM Act. In April 2011, Power.com shut down its service.
