The People app is your address book and your social app all in one. You can add your contacts and keep in touch with friends and family on Skype—all from a single app.
The People, Mail, and Calendar apps work together. So when you email a contact from Mail, the app picks up that person's email address from the People app (which is where their contact info lives).
The People app for Windows 8/8.1 no longer supports integration with Facebook and Sina Weibo networks due to changes in the connection software from both services. This means that the People app will no longer be able to access information from or share directly to Facebook or Sina Weibo.
