Microsoft took the wraps off Office Communicator ‘14’ this week – their corporate VOIP and Instant Messaging offering. One of the interesting new features is that your Communicator status updates now integrate with the SharePoint 2010 Activity Feed. Don’t know what the Activity Feed is? Think of it as the company equivalent of the Facebook or LinkedIn news feed.
In the current version of Communicator you only get to see you contact’s status in the Communicator client and in Outlook.
