1. Open the People app.
2. Click “Connected to”in the upper right corner of the screen. The Accounts menu appears.
3. Click Add an account.
4. Select a social network you wish to add an account from. Right now, the app supports Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
5. Click on Connect.
6. Log in to your account. A screen appears saying that "you're ready to go."
