You can already send email, fax, call (VoIP), and SMS in Microsoft Outlook.  Microsoft Outlook Social Connectors even allows you to stay connected to your social and business networks, e.g. LinkedIn, MySpace, Facebook, Windows Live … etc.  Microsoft Outlook is now your central communication hub!

 I am only focus on Microsoft Outlook LinkedIn Connector in this article and come back to discuss other Microsoft Outlook Social Connectors later.

 Microsoft Outlook LinkedIn Connector allows you to:

  • Keep track of all your LinkedIn connections` latest activity for who e-mails you right at the bottom of that e-mail.  If they have a Profile Photo, you’ll see that too.

  • Get the latest contact information from your LinkedIn connections.  Outlook would add a new Contacts folder “LinkedIn” and automatically sync information from Linkedin.

  • E-mail your LinkedIn connections directly.  You can make use of all Outlook power features including mail merge to send personalized email to all your LinkedIn connections; and you are not restricted to only send to 50 connections in each email.
  • Click the green “Add” icon next to any email sender to easily invite them to join your professional network on LinkedIn.
