Gather ye your ingredients and your tools and let's go:
Okay! Installation complete, now the fun begins. (It better. I hope.)
Open up Outlook. See anything? Me neither; at least not right away. Oh! Something popped up that is asking me to connect to my online social networks (Facebook and LinkedIn are what I have going right now.) So let's add our user names and passwords and click Connect. Mine seemed to work for me—you? (If not, maybe you entered your user name and/or passwords incorrectly; you could always head over to the sites themselves and try to log in and see if you're entering everything correctly and then try again.) Then click Finish.
Now what? Hmmm. (By the way, I'm using that cool Windows 7 snap feature so that I can work in Outlook AND write this post at the same time —each one is sharing half of the screen. (You know? The commercial with the guy in the shower who has to call his mother to tell her about it? OK — whatever. Just offering a little side tip.)
Here's where the magic happens: Click the View tab and you'll see something called the People Pane. Click the arrow, and then select Normal or Minimized and you'll see that People Pane pop up on the bottom of your Outlook screen! Now, when one of your friends emails you, you can see their status, all the mails they've sent to you, all the attachments, and so on.
Here is Doug's video so that you can see all that awaits you...

I think a lot of us who are "trying" it, are having problems using it.
Anything we can do? Do you have an update on the status of the issue?
I was told to upload an CSV, or use the outlook. I don't understand what they are talking about !!!!!!!!! You have to do all of this just to get on facebook?
