PALO ALTO, Calif., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Threadbox™, the next generation social communications service, launches "Threadbox Messenger" release, providing customers with email and instant messaging replacement service. Threadbox Messenger is based around threads which organize and group individual messages into persistent conversations shared by all participants. It offers presence and real-time messaging as well as right-time messaging with email integration; provides planning and decision-making tools; self-organizes conversations, files, and contacts; and makes conversations easier, faster, more engaging and efficient. The new Threadbox Messenger release also offers Threadbox email addresses to more simply integrate with email; invitation integration with Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn contacts; share-friendly thread links with Facebook friends and Twitter followers; and a desktop notification application.

"A growing number of our customers are telling us Threadbox is replacing email and IM to communicate with workgroups and social groups," said Michael Cerda, CEO and co-founder of Threadbox.  "Today's release of Threadbox Messenger honors that growing demand."
