FBLook is a nifty little plugin developed for Outlook to keep yourself updated about friends’ activity on facebook. The add-in provides users two simple features – update status messages and view complete news feed.
It was originally developed for Outlook 2007 where one could easily post status updates and access news feed via a simple toolbar. However in Outlook 2010 there is no such toolbar and can be used only from the Add-ins tab. This could be useful in workplaces where you don’t want co-workers or boss to know. 😉
Head over to the add-ins tab and hit the Login to Facebook button. Allow access to FBLook and you are done.
It would be great if the developers could integrate the app as a widget like RedCritter and allow users to comment on their friend’s post without having to open up a web browser. One clever usage is when you need to post a song name as a status message, it supports both iTunes and Windows Media Player.
It works on Outlook 2003 (SP3), Outlook 2007 (SP2) and Outlook 2010 (Beta) at the moment.
