This is really cool – I’ve been running an internal beta build of it for a while now. You can now see Facebook status updates for anyone who sends you mail, depending on their privacy settings. Get the Office Social Connector 1.1 here:
- 32-bit Outlook 2010: Update for Outlook Social Connector (KB983403), 32-Bit Edition.
- 64-bit Outlook 2010: Update for Outlook Social Connector (KB983403), 64-bit Edition.
- Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2003: Microsoft Outlook Social Connector 32-bit. (If you have an earlier version of OSC, you should first uninstall that version, and then install OSC 1.1.)
Then, install the Facebook connector, which you can get here:
Angela’s got a good write up of all the details, including screenshots, and what you need to know if you want to write your own connector. Read about it here.
