These days, everything feels like it’s being drip-fed social media. Don’t get me wrong, I love social media, but companies are over-doing it, with the latest addition to the list of extensive-stitching-together being Outlook Social Connector.
I love the name! “Social Connector”: just as unimaginative as everything else that the horn-rimmed guys at Microsoft do.
My own anti-Microsoft sentiments aside…
What the hell is it exactly?
The Outlook Social Connector is an add-on for Outlook. When a user clicks to read an e-mail message, a new pane on the main e-mail reading screen fills with the sender’s most recent Facebook, MySpace, and LinkedIn activities.
