Option to add social media details to contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Provide fields in Contacts specifically for Social Media such as Skype, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.
Jeff Davis commented
Please don't label these new fields when you add them. We'll know what they are based on the website URL. This is SO necessary for all of us since Outlook doesn't like it if you puts a site URL in the Notes section of a Contact. Your "live" server tends to want to keep duplicating it sometimes.
The amazing thing is why social media field AREN'T already in Outlook. A relic from the 1990s.
Dentro del Outlook debería estar incluido las redes social (Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etcetera)
Outlook should include social networks (WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.)
En la aplicación para PC dentro del Outlook debería estar incluido las redes social (Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etcétera), así como algunas aplicaciones de gestión (Trello, Slack, etcétera)
In the PC application within Outlook, social networks (Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.) should be included, as well as some management applications (Trello, Slack, etc.)

Outlook Contacts only allows one social media address entry, I would like to be able to add a Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Instagram social media address too where relevant

Man kann ja Adresse, Telefonnummer usw. hinterlegen. Aber es sollte die Funktion eingefügt werden, das ein Social Media Acount (Facebookaccount oder VK-Net) in dem Kontakt hinterlegt werden kann bzw. sich das entsprechend verbindet.
Auch wäre es nicht schlecht, wenn Nachrichten aus dem Social Media Bereich kommen diese in einer Kontofunktion abfragen zu können.
One can deposit address, telephone number etc. But it should be inserted the function, which a Social Media Acount (Facebookaccount or VK-Net) can be deposited in the contact or which connects accordingly.
Also, it would not be bad if messages come from the social media area to be able to query them in an account function.
It would be amazing to have social media plugins in contacts.
Defo, defo defo, need socialProfiles I'm having to change a huge amount of Swift and Nodejs code just so i can integrate with apple native address book when CNContacts are specified
Definetely need fields for social media contacts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It would be grateful if Socail Media (Facebook or Twitter) is linked with Contacts in Outlook 2019, where we can see tweet from twitter or update from facebook.

Buenos días: Quisiera que en el perfil del contacto tenga el espacio para introducir las direcciones de las redes sociales (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc)

I would like to share a suggestion with Microsoft that I feel would add valued benefit when using the contacts feature.
1) Allow or make it easier to customize what fields are shown on the main page of the contact information.
2) There should be fields to add in social media information such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
3) There should be a feature to find the duplicates.
4) Make it easier to save a contact to multiple peoples contacts. ( I manage several peoples contacts and I find it tedious to save a contact to 4+ peoples contacts.
5) There should be fields to add in if a person works for/is associated with more than one company. (For example a CEO to a company and Board member for a certain organization. It would be nice to add more than one company.)
6) Cell phones - people will have personal cell phones and people have company cell phones. It would be nice to have more variety of choices. Company Main Line, Desk Phone, Personal Cell, Work Cell etc....
7) Allow more than one web page to be listed.
Again, I manage 4+ more address books for executives and having this information would make it easier to help these executives. If there is away I can put this information in and make it so it is easily seen by those executives/directors it would be great. If there is a way to do this, I am totally unaware.......

Just as you have an option to enter into standard fields for email, phone, etc - we need social media fields for this that have evolved to be important such as linkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc
Efrain Machado commented
Need Custom option for categories for phone, address, etc. For example, Exten for phone number, Branch name for address, etc.
Absolutely! This is such a glaring omission.

Contacts need to have coordinate boxes for Latitude and Longitude. This would allow finding a location that does not necessarily have an address. We have a spreadsheet of telemetry sites that we could make a contact list of and be able to use Google maps for directions to these sites.
Lou Szymkow commented
Twitter is there but no others.
Facebook, Facebook Business, Google Plus & Circles, Linkedin, etc..
Without these features, Outlook become redundant
Paul Souto commented
I agree. And don't forget to include LinkedIn. Currently, I'm using the notes section to add these details.
Stephen Farkas commented
Long needed idea! Make other services (eg. Facebook) Contacts details editable - currently R/O, enable to add additional fields that you can save
add additional phone number for assistant or wife
Steve Rogalinski commented
Add Facebook and Twitter fields and add additional Phone fields. Add a Custom phone field. Need a field for extensions and for auto dial numbers - like account numbers etc to get past all robotic voice prompts
