Office SharePoint Server 2007 automatically adds your manager, your peers, and your direct reports as your colleagues. In addition, Office SharePoint Server 2007 allows you to add colleagues (people you know), so you can easily navigate to your colleagues’ My Site public pages. Office SharePoint Server 2007 also provides a Colleague Tracker Web Part on My Site, which tells you what changed about your colleagues. Also, when searching for people in your company, you can group by social distance so that your colleagues are displayed to you first.
