In the latest Outlook version, the Contact section is no more. It has transformed into a new form called People. It is also called People Hub. It allows you to store updated contact information of everyone in association with you. A major improvement People Hub has against Contacts (on older Outlook version) is that it displays more information.
The best part is that you can sync it with social networking sites like Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook and retrieve more information of a person or contact you have in Outlook. You can even customize People and get to know what the person is doing at the moment when you are sending him the email message.
A new feature added to Outlook 2013 is Peeks. It allows you get information from other Outlook utilities without closing the current utility you are using.

But, Peeks allows you to view Calendar without closing or minimizing the Mail. To use Peeks in Outlook 2013, float your mouse pointer over any of the icons you have in the Navigation Bar.
