Till date I have always relied on my desktop email client, MS Outlook, to manage my contact information on my computer. But with Windows 8 I got a chance to switch to the People app. Besides being able to manage contacts, I found few more advantages in the form of staying connected to my social accounts.
However, when I imported contacts from the different services that I use, I found that I had multiple entries for some people on the list. Say for example, one from Facebook, one from Google and another one from Skype, all for the same person. Now, since I love staying clean and organized, this was irritating for me. I decided to merge the scatter and to my good the application provides for a way to do that.
I just took an example where you may see contact information for a person appearing multiple times from different services. You may have your own reasons to merge them. Whatever it be, it is useful and you will need it at least once for sure. So, I suggest that you bookmark the post so that you do not have to struggle on finding it again. Also, do not forget to share it with your friends who might need this. After all, who needs clutter right?
