Microsoft is hopping on the social networking bandwagon with a new improvised outlook. Very soon your desktop e mail program could double up as an aggregator of feeds from your social networking profiles. The Beta version of Outlook Social Connector could enable you to see inputs from Linkedin, Facebook and Myspace.

People using Office 2003, 2007 and beta versions of Office 2010 can download the updated Outlook Social Connector beta Wednesday. LinkedIn, which is primarily used for business networking online, is the first company to make its add-in software available. It can be downloaded from LinkedIn.com.

Microsoft said the Facebook and MySpace plug-ins will be ready for download by the time Office 2010 goes on sale in June.
