On Tuesday, Microsoft added Facebook, the most popular social networking site to their Outlook. The users can view their friends status updates, profile, pictures and so on by using Outlook itself. They have implemented a box called the "People Pane" in the Outlook where the users view their friends profile pics and their activities.

Earlier in February, Microsoft had integrated other two social networks. They were "Linkedln" and "MySpace", which was called "Outlook Social Connector". Microsoft is expecting more partners to be added down the line.

Outlook Social Connector can be downloaded for Outlook 2003 and 2007 from the Microsoft Download Center. The users who are using Outlook 2010 can download it through Microsoft update itself.
