With the release of Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft introduced a vast amount of new features. One of the Office product component which has a significant change from the previous versions was Outlook. Outlook has a new interface with ribbons coming in. Another notable feature which interests me is the Outlook Social Connectors. With the boom of social networks Microsoft came up with this connector called Outlook Social Connector (OSC) which is a add-in to Outlook 2010 and which helps to display information such as friends, profiles, activities, and status information from your social networks. Currently the OSC is available for LinkedIn, Microsoft Live Messenger, SharePoint My Site and now Facebook
How do you get this? Install Outlook 2010 and download the OSC by clicking here. The installation of this OSC is very straight forward and anyone can do it in a few clicks.
