  • Also means this demo might crash!
  • Not called ‘My Site anymore
  • Newsfeed
  • Scope for confusion “Follow” vs. “Alert Me”
  • Community view
  • iPad versionMobile important because discussion posting is an ideal use case for “standing in a queue” scenarios
  • SharePoint Best screenshot I could do – most were much worse.All on iPhone 4.
  • What’s missing from social? * Recognition scheme * Pinterest-like flow-generation * OOTB ideationGamification: needs careful though but you can switch it on with a couple of clicks.Points are a very basic extrinsic motivator, they don’t work for more creative tasks (Dan Pink in “Drive”)Risk that people ‘game’ the points system rather than really adding valueLevels can turn people off if they look unattainable – reduces diversity of contributions as a few gurus dominatePoints system can send a message that a community is “dead” when low-volume may actually be appropriateSee also: http://www.clearboxconsulting.co.uk/gamification-on-intranets-the-risks-of-playing-along/
  • My Site
  • BUT self-service always seems to use the Team Site templatehttps://www.nothingbutsharepoint.com/sites/eusp/Pages/SharePoint-Online-2013-Sites-Tab-and-Self-Service-Site-Creation.aspx
  • Promoted in the right way, you can use this to start to bridge silos – as in, making it more visible when someone tags a document so that other people get to know a project exists, or using microfeeds as project updates.POLITICS – people see microblog update and mis-interpret due to brevity or have the “why wasn’t I informed earlier” rant (push rather than pull mindset). Not like social media – nobody complains “Why didn’t you tell me your cat could chase a laser pointer?”
  • CSWP exampleTag stories with e.g. Finance, Sales, HR + UK, Germany, FranceUse CSWP to have feed of all Finance stories, all UK stories etc.Refiners let you limit to Time period.CQWP still exists – will show more instant updates, but only within a site collection and is more resource-hungry.
  • No “translate this page” button (like Google option)Often, when I introduce SharePoint to internal communicators and talk about handling multiple-languages, people excitedly ask if that means their articles will automatically be translated. It was a shame to dash their hopes and explain that still needed to happen manually. With 2013, however, there is access to an automated translation service in the cloud. I
  • Image renditions: manage sets of sizes e.g. For mobile vs PC or thumbnail vs feature images. Old SP had a “Mobile” template, but only one. Here you can have mobile, 7” tablet, 10” tablet etc.Video – more formats supported but not mov, flv etc.
  • More tech from FAST has gone into SP.
  • ...or Google Analytics if you still believe they do no Evil.
  • Blog post editing – see “Convert to XHTML” but not “Add link” or “Add picture” unless you click on the Insert Tab.
  • Pace of cultural change is much slower. People will argue that the tools are the barrier, but probably not. Can use Yammer to test appetite and hope for a migration path. Attini talk woudl be good too.
  • Not on SP, creaky intranetMay as well move to latest version.http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/tablets/top-ipad-apps-for-accessing-sharepoint/1477
