Looks like Microsoft is looking to bring Social Media and Social Networking into our business daily use took, Microsoft Outlook.  As described here on the beta page, here is what they call the Outlook Social Connector:

The all-new Outlook Social Connector connects you to the social and business networks you use, including Microsoft SharePoint, Windows Live, and other popular third-party sites, so you can get more information and stay in touch with the people in your network without leaving Outlook.

Connecting Outlook to each social network requires a provider. To get started, download and install social network provider for Outlook.

NOTE: The Outlook Social Connector included in the Office 2010 Beta is not compatible with the beta providers currently available online. Office 2010 Beta users must install the Outlook Social Connector 32-bit Beta in order to successfully use the social network providers currently available. Also, you cannot install the 32-bit OSC Beta on Outlook 2010 Beta 64-bit.
