For the past 2 & 1/2 to 3 weeks, details of 98% of the Facebook Status Updates & Posted Photo email notifications I've received, are NOT shown in the Outlook 2010 email window pane; that is to say, the text of the status updates, or the thumbnails of the posted photos in particular, are NOT being shown. One must now click on "View Post" in the email to go directly to Facebook, to see either the text of the updated status, or the newly posted photo.

The 2% of the FB Email Notifications arrive normally, with the entire text of the statuses, or the thumbnails of the photos shown within the email.

I'm using Windows 7 64 Ultimate SP1 with Office Outlook 2010 32 bit, & the Social Connector 32 bit add-on, with Firefox as my default browser: via my GPO settings, I allow ALL html headers and images to be displayed &/or downloaded in my Office Outlook 2010 emails (including "Safe Senders"), & also through Social Connector, have changed nothing in the GPO settings, nothing within the Outlook 2010 settings themselves, & nothing in my FB Account settings, that would warrant this kind of change.

It's extra frustrating, since if someone posted a status or photo they've later deleted that one wanted to see, those would still be retained in the original email notification as an option.

The only new FB change I could think of that may be causing this issue, is the new FB Messenger App everyone is being forced to use with their Cell Phones when they attempt to go to FB messages now; but that should have ZERO to do with PC-based FB Email Notifications.

I copied and posted examples of what I've been getting 98% of the time below the line here, only changing the name of the "Close Friends to a generic one".

Please advise-Thanks.

I wonder if its a Facebook security setting on the other person's account. Are the same people always shown or not shown?

No, it's not always the same people, & I'd find it hard to conceive that so many FB friends would make the same security changes on their profiles, all at once, around the same time. FB Admin has probably changed something "technically" that they haven't revealed publicly yet.
