I see facebook, linkedin and others. How can I get my app into this list?

You cannot. Windows Store apps are stand-alone and are not extendable outside of the standard contracts.
You can provide contacts from your app via a Contact picker (extension). This will enable your contacts to be available any time a user chooses a contact with the Contact Picker.

We have implemented the contact contract and it works well. Is there a process that can get our app into this list? How did linkedin and the others do it? I believe that having our app available in the list would be a natural use case.

I did notice that after the people app had been updated more options were available. So our app would need to be added into the people app code itself?

Correct. The accounts the People app links to are included in the People app's code.
