People search site MyLife has purchased the technology from recently shuttered all-in-one social communications manager Threadsy. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

As we’ve written in the past, MyLife is a full-fledged search engine which not only finds people—thanks to aggregated search across social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and MySpace—but also helps visitors connect with them all on the same site. MyLife pulls information from public records and also allows users to subscribe to the search site to connect with others, track their searches and more.

Threadsy, which was a TechCrunch 50 (2009) finalist, allows users to access a single interface to retrieve and respond to updates from their contacts by email, Facebook, Twitter and other social services. Threadsy announced in October that it would be shutting down in November 2011.

While MyLife allows its 60 million registered users to connect to their social and email accounts for free, the Threadsy technology will allow MyLife to further bolster its Personal Relationship Manager offerings even further.

Users will be now be able to create a ‘social inbox’ on MyLife that combines email and direct messaging from all social networks, and Photo and audio sharing. MyLife is also announcing a new iPhone app today, which allows users to access social network communications from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and soon, Google+.
