The social bar has been around since Outlook 2010, it is the bar at the bottom of each email that should show a picture of the person who sent the mail ( if anyone could be bothered to upload the images ), it also shows previous emails etc. Its back in Outlook 2013 at it has more new useless features such as showing all emails, all previous meetings, attachments etc.I’m kidding, I can see some use but its not for me so..graphical guide first and a video of how to at the bottom of the page.
Disabling The Outlook 2013 Social Bar

In Com add ins simply deselect the Outlook Social Connector 2013, it will now not show on the email preview pane.
