Enhanced MySites • Activity FeedThe activity feed aggregates content you track and content you publish into a dynamic listing much like what you would find on your Facebook news feed. • ProfileMore customizable, security-trimmed based on preference. • “Ask Me About…”Based on Profile. Web part that helps users in your firm find answers from people with the right answers. • Social TaggingNext…
Social Tagging • Social tags, which enable users to save items of interest, organize all information for a project, and connect to others who share their interests. • The Note Board, which enables users to add comments about Web pages, documents, and library items to be tracked in a central location. • Ratings, which are social tags that allow users to assess the value of content against a scale, for example, one through five stars. • Bookmarklets, which enable users to add tags and notes to pages that are outside a SharePoint environment. For example, if users add tags to a page on an Internet Web site, those tags and notes can appear on the Tags and Notes tab of their My Site.http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff608137.aspx
Wikis • Team Site In SharePoint Server 2010, the Team Site template home page is a wiki page • Enterprise Wiki Enterprise wikis help organizations collect, organize, and distribute information. Enterprise wikis often become repositories for an organization's unstated knowledge, which otherwise might not be stored anywhere. Enterprise wikis can encourage informal learning and sharing tips with other users, which can reduce the need for formal training or continuous IT support.http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee721051.aspx

Discussion… • Is SharePoint Social Networking used in your company/organization? • If so, how/what parts? • What is useful/not useful? • If not, why not? • Pre-conceived notions by management? Warranted? • Minimize direct contact? (Go to the Service Desk) • Adoption by the user community? • Don’t see the business need? • Have the improvements in 2010 caused you to re-evaluate/re-configure social networking features in your company/organization?
