I re-enabled the LinkedIn social connector plugin as per your instructions on this page http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/so...inkedin-social-connector-provider-going-away/
After closing and restarting Outlook 2013, LinkedIn re-appeared in Social Network Accounts. However, it doesn't seem to accept my credentials. At first, "authentication error" was written next to the account, now it says "Password needed".
Is the workaround not valid anymore?
I'm also using Outlook 2013 and it seems that the plugin has completely disappeared from the options available.. I even clicked on the link in Outlook for "Connect to another social network" and the page it directs me too is broken.
Yes, when i re-enabled the connector using the key, the linkedin contacts and photos came back, even though the banner said i wasn't logged in.
The connector will be evolving over time but I'm not sure exactly what is going to happen with it - I *think* we will continue to get profile photos and probably contact data showing in the people view (but not saved locally), but I expect that feeds might be going away. I don't know if they will be adding more providers.
run the reg key i have at the url in the first post and it should bring the provider back. i have another key that allows the login to work but my outlook is unstable with it enabled. Also, linkedin is deprecated and won't work much longer.
