Social Feature of SharePoint 2013
Out-of-the-box SharePoint 2013 has some pretty neat capabilities to support project management initiatives in your organization. Some of the enhancements will greatly improve the communication on a project so that everybody can collaborate effectively!
Some of the items like Newsfeeds enable immediate discussions, features connecting SharePoint to Microsoft Office helps people collaborate quicker and easier, and mobile improvements allow team members to stay tuned in while on the go.
SharePoint’s new features are strong influenced by–or in some cases, lifted from–from the top social networks. For instance, the updated My Sites feature has a strong microblogging component, complete with likes, hash tags, app mentions, and other social tools you’ll recognize from Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Community sites–discussion forums where enterprise users share information and answer colleagues’ questions–bring a similar social feel to collaborative computing.
Sharepoint 2013′s People Card contains your contact information, as well as pictures, status updates, and activity feeds from SharePoint, Facebook, and LinkedIn. And SkyDrive Pro, the premium version of Microsoft’s cloud storage and syncing service, allows users to share files across SharePoint.
In earlier versions of SharePoint, each user had a profile and a personal site (e.g., My Site). The 2013 version of SharePoint splits My Site into three sections: Newsfeed, SkyDrive, and Sites. (More on each in the slideshow). A global navigation bar provides access to each section. These social features are tightly integrated into SharePoint 2013, so you no longer need to launch a Web browser to access them.
Previously, enterprise social networking on SharePoint required either extensive customization or the use of an add-on product such as NewsGator Social Sites. While still leaving room for third-party products to add features on top of the platform, Microsoft has now made SharePoint more of an enterprise social network in its own right.
