Did you know that you can download all of your contacts from LinkedIn
right into Outlook? You now can. LinkedIn and Microsoft recently
partnered together to allow you to see your contacts and message them
right from Outlook. If someone emails you that isn’t a connection in
LinkedIn, you can invited them to connect directly from Outlook.
If you want to network and use LinkedIn, it’s a very powerful tool.
To get started, all you have to do is:
- Download the Outlook Social Connector from Microsoft. Outlook
2003, 2007 or 2010 is required for this.
- Now download the LinkedIn Outlook Connector from LinkedIn.
- Restart Outlook and follow the directions to connect your LinkedIn
account to your Outlook
As soon as the two connect, Outlook will import your LinkedIn
connections, allowing you to view all of the profile photos and activity
in your LinkedIn account.
Here is a short video demonstrating how it works.
