  • Bookmarks - In SharePoint 2007 a user could create a link from any page within SharePoint and store it from within their SharePoint My Site. In 2010 this has been extended so that any site whether it is external to SharePoint or internal can be captured and stored within the My Site as well as appearing in Activity Feeds and tags. Note Board - The note board feature allows user to comment on other tags and content submitted by users within a SharePoint site. The note also is captured as part of the activity feed and can be tracked by users. Rate Content - In SharePoint 2010 users can also rate content, making easier for others to see what the community’s opinion of the content is. In short, this should lead to users opening content that others rate high, rather than low.
  • The Ask Me About area highlights the user's areas of expertise.The Recent Activities area displays the user's recent activities, such as colleagues they have added, new memberships, and so on.The Note Board area contains a text box to post notes for the user and view notes that are left for the user. The My Organization Chart displays the user's location in the organization. The In Common with You area displays pertinent information that you have in common with the user's whose profile you are viewing, such as shared managers or memberships.Privacy options - Only Me, My Manager, My Team, My Colleagues, Everyone.
  • Communities - Establish and cultivate a collaborative setting for internal and external stakeholders. Turn SharePoint groups into Social Sites communities of practice and interest for projects, initiatives, and common interests. Use pre-defined templates to kick-start your community planning.Microblogging - Allow for spontaneous knowledge sharing. Avoid the costs and overhead of another 3rd-party solution while also providing peace of mind. Ensure organizational conversations are secure and housed in your SharePoint environment.Activity Streams - Collect an aggregated flow of events, content, and activities to provide users with relevant and timely information. Filter these events including those from SharePoint, external social media streams (e.g., Twitter), and other internal and 3rd-party applications.Spheres - When a SharePoint Team Site or a Social Sites Community is too in-depth, but email is too limiting, Social Sites 2010 lets you create a user-generated, light-weight public or private group called a Sphere.Social Profiles - Eliminate the friction and fear of social networking by jump-starting adoption, participation, and collaboration with a simple profile-building coach to help your workforce create and maintain their face to the organization.Questions and Answers - Getting an answer is a just-in-time solution. Allowing people to ask and answer questions within a community is one of the quickest ways to drive the value of cross-enterprise collaboration.Lync Integration - Conduct fluid real-time and asynchronous conversations through the Microsoft Lync integration for Social Sites 2010. View user presence and initiate on-the-fly IM, audio, and video conversations.Desktop & Email Clients - Participate in Social Sites without being inside the platform. Filter activity stream by top news, questions, ideas, topics, communities, or colleagues to quickly find information. Ask and answer questions, submit ideas, and post, comment, flag for follow-up, and like events and activities.

  • The Outlook Social Connector is a set of new features to help keep track of your friends and colleagues while enabling you to grow your professional network.The Outlook Social Connector (OSC) brings social views of your colleagues and friends right to your Inbox. As you read your e-mail messages, glance down at the new People Pane to see the picture, name, and title of the sender. A rich, aggregated collection of information about the sender is included. Communication history Your mailbox is searched and the recent messages you’ve exchanged with that person appear. Can’t remember the last time you e-mailed this person? A quick look at the OSC reveals the last time you received an email from them, and one click opens up the message. Meetings When is the next scheduled meeting with this person? The OSC shows upcoming appointments that include you and the message sender. Attachments Can’t find the attachment that the person is referring to in a message? With the OSC you can quickly review attachments that you and the sender have exchanged. One-click access quickly opens the attachment or you can see the message that it is attached to.
  • Activity feeds Stay on top of activities involving your colleagues and friends in real time. The OSC makes Outlook 2010 a social networking tool by connecting to the new social experiences in SharePoint 2010. That connection allows the OSC to download activity feeds for colleagues and display them inside the new People Pane.You’ll see rich information about your colleagues’ activity such as profile updates to their MySite, documents and websites they tag, and changes to their personal status message.
  • Open Connectivity. The OSC in Outlook 2010 will connect by default to the new social networking experiences in SharePoint 2010. We are happy to announce that connectivity to any network, including SharePoint, is built using our public ‘provider’ extensibility platform.
  • Outlook has partnered with LinkedIn, the online professional networking site, to provide an amazing connected experience for our shared customers. The LinkedIn team has built a provider for the OSC using our public SDK, providing you with pictures and activity information for your colleagues directly from their network. Simply click on a message from a co-worker to discover what new connections they’ve made on LinkedIn, or click the LinkedIn badge underneath a photo to jump right to a person’s profile page on the Web.
