Wow. This bug may be fixed in record time! I first became aware of this error in late December 2011 and passed it along. I'm pleasantly surprised how quickly it is being addressed. Let's hope Facebook moves as fast as Microsoft did (less than 3 weeks).
While this is not fixed by this update, Microsoft has released an update for the Facebook provider which will support an update Facebook is working on. You can download it now, or wait for automatic updates to push it out within a few weeks. Microsoft Outlook Social Connector Provider for Facebook
I really hate third-party integration because it's so easy for the third-party to break the feature on their end and it's often difficult to get fixed. The same thing happened to the MapIt feature in earlier versions of Outlook and it was only fixed in new versions. I hope that Microsoft and Facebook fix this feature soon, rather than allowing it to die on the vine.
When you use the Social Connector and Facebook provider and click on the + to add the person to your Facebook account, you are taken to //www.facebook.com/microsoft/addfriend.php?emails=person21%40yahoo.com&name=Person, where a 404, page not found error is returned.
The page you requested was not found.

This is not a problem with the Outlook installation, the page is not working at Facebook. Microsoft and Facebook are aware of the issue but who knows how long (if ever!) before it is fixed.
