Facebook showing as a contact in Outlook 2010 social connector - facebook messages do not include sender's profile.

Not open for further replies.


I expected the Social connector on Outlook to behave like this; John Smith posts a message on my Facebook page. I get a notification from Facebook on Outlook. I click on the notification, and in the people panel I see John Smith's Facebook profile, as well as previous messages etc. Instead, as the email is indeed from Facebook, I see all my Facebook messages and I actually have the option to befriend Facebook on Facebook (If you follow me.) That of course doesn't work. Is there no way to see my contact's profile instead of Facebook's?

Otherwise, when John Smith sends me an email directly it works fine - just bugs me that I can't see his profile when he sends me a message through Facebook.

Am I doing something wrong? Any plans to update and improve the social connector?
