Outlook integrates social-network as Linkedin and Facebook.


This Wednesday, Microsoft issued beta software that brings social-network information into Outlook.

The product, called Outlook Social Connector, has been available in the Office 2010 beta.

Go to  Outlook Social Connector download site and you will discover that the new version works with Outlook 2003 and 2007 and connects with social-network partners, which wasn’t the case with the earlier version.

Outlook Social Connector will let people see updates from a person’s social-network contacts.

Early in November, LinkedIn announced that it would become the first actual partner in the Microsoft program.

The LinkedIn connector is now available from LinkedIn’s Web site.

Microsoft said connectors for Facebook and MySpace will be available in the first half of 2010.
