I am trying to see if there is any way to consolidate my contacts in Windows Live. Currently I have my Exchange/Outlook address book as my primary database and I sync or export/import from there with gmail, hotmail, etc.

With Outlook Social Connector (or hotmail connector, or whatever the tool is called), will I be able to sync my contacts or will it just create a new Contacts folder in Outlook?

Thanks for the link, Natasha. That helps clarify social networks link. BTW, the contacts do NOT sync between Outlook Contacts folder and the social network. They only sync to Outlook from the social network.

So my question now is about Hotmail Connector for Outlook - will that sync my hotmail/windows live contacts with Outlook Contacts?

Yes, the hotmail connector will sync hotmail contacts to outlook. If you want to sync outlook contacts to hotmail you need to move or copy the contacts to the hotmail connector's contact's folder.
