Facebook & LinkedIn info in your inbox..via Outlook Social Connector
Microsoft has partnered with LinkedIn, Facebook and MySpace to allow users to see updates, photos and activities from these sites within Outlook, as part of the Outlook Social Connector. People using Office 2003, 2007 and beta versions of Office 2010 can download the updated Outlook Social Connector beta. Those social-networking services will join Windows Live as services capable of being viewed from within Outlook.
LinkedIn for Outlook will enable users to view their contacts’ updates and photos alongside e-mails, and automatically update Outlook contacts with information from LinkedIn. Post the release of Facebook and MySpace applications (expected in the first half of 2010), user information from those services will also appear in Outlook.

This folder aggregates information from your LinkedIn account and your Outlook contacts, presenting it in a business-card format that includes the contact’s photo, title and e-mail address. Here is a demo on how to install this connector and enjoy all the updates right into your inbox!
