The People app is a Store app that is included by default in Windows 8. It helps to bring all your contacts together in one place. See what’s new with your friends, and join in the conversation by adding your own comments and updates. You can quickly add your email contacts, your social networks, the people you follow on Facebook, Twitter, and more to one central contact list when you use the People app.
