The installation of Outlook Social Connector is different from most downloads. Besides downloading Outlook Social Connector (for Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2003; it’s included in Outlook 2010), you must download provider files for each social network you want to connect to. Watch this short video to see how, and see the important links plus an overview of the Outlook Social Connector, below.
Note: To use Facebook in the Outlook Social Connector, you must allow a third party application (which is the default setting). If you have edited these settings in Facebook, you may need to edit them again. On your Facebook home page, click Account, and then click Application Settings.
Written instructions are at Office.com for Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2003.
For more help, ask questions at Microsoft Answers.
UPDATE: Read about the January, 2012 Outlook Social Connector update.
For Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2003, you can download the Outlook Social Connector. Outlook 2010 users will be automatically prompted for an update to use these features. Then visit the provider files homepage at Office.com.

Sorry about that, we've replaced the link with the steps you need to edit your Facebook App settings. See the "note" above...
Thank you very much for great innovation in MSN network, this is a great move in a great direction. However, the sad news is that I was not able to watch the demonstration about how to download the outlook-facebook because the video was block from displaying, reasons not unfolded.
Once again, more power to your elbow.
How is this better/worse than Xobni?
No pics. Cannot see anything.
ok...tried it, and the social connector does not show up in my tools tab! I uninstalled and reinstalled, and still nothing. Hello?
@queenmother, what version of outlook are you using?
I'm having a similar issue. I just upgraded to Outlook 2010 Professional Plus and after downloading and installing the provider file for LinkedIn it tells me that I need to install the OSC, which is already installed. Then it doesn't show up in the list of Social Network Accounts. All I see is My Site.
The others work. Only LinkedIn seems to be broken.
I am trying to use the social connector with my new copy of Outlook 2010, and I downloaded the FB extension and whenever I enter my username/email and password (and they are correct) it says that they are "invalid." Any ideas?
Am having the same issues as below with the links to FB and LinkedIn
I have heard of other connecting Gist via social connector. Is this possible?
where is the video?
Jeff Benson - Gist is not available at this time.
firstname.lastname@example.org - the video should be right there? Do you see any graphics?
When I first started up Outlook 2010 the Social network link automatically worked. Now it disappeared. How do i get it back?
