Ever wonder what Link Contacts does in Outlook? Well if you have, as have some of my readers, here is the answer you have been searching for:
As you may or may not know, Outlook can connect to multiple sources that provide a contact listing (i.e., Facebook, LinkedIn, Windows Live Messenger (via the Social Connector)). So, it would follow, that you would most likely have some duplicate entries of some contacts but, each of these may provide additional information or may be updated differently.
When you link the contact items together, yo will get a single aggregated overview of all the information for that particular contact
So there you have it! Life made a bit easier thanks to good old Outlook!
