Helping to avoid identity crises
Not all of the people you know are going to be in your address book, though. For example, I know a lot of people on Facebook and LinkedIn, but I don’t have contact info for every one of them available in Windows Live. For this release, we built a set of features that connects Windows Live to the social networks that you use and keeps track of your entire list of contacts. When you connect a service like Facebook, MySpace, and soon LinkedIn to Windows Live, all of your contacts from those services will be available in Windows Live automatically.
This means, for example, that you can easily send a message to a Facebook user directly from Windows Live.
Soon you’ll even be able to send your Facebook friends an instant message from the Messenger program and on the web.
