Microsoft's Outlook Social Connector has just gotten a bit more social courtesy of a new update that has added Facebook and Windows Live Messenger integration to its mix.

Unveiled Tuesday, the latest version lets Microsoft Outlook users view status updates, wall posts, and photos of their Facebook friends without leaving their e-mail. People will also be able to add more friends to Facebook and Windows Live directly from Outlook's People pane.

Facebook and Windows Live join LinkedIn and MySpace, which Microsoft integrated into the Outlook Social Connector last winter. Making its debut last year as part of the beta of Office 2010, the Social Connector went through a major upgrade in February. The service now integrates the latest three editions of Outlook, namely 2003, 2007, and 2010.
