Is SharePoint 2013 good enough to be your enterprise social network?
Since the SharePoint 2013 preview became generally available, I’ve read many reviews highlighting the new social features that Microsoft have developed. In summary, SharePoint 2013 new social features include:
- Upgraded activity feeds and microblogging.
- Community sites that provide reputation and gamification features.
When you look at the entire SharePoint 2013 package and the way they have been integrated, these are actually a significant step forward for SharePoint as an enterprise social platform. But does this mean it is finally ready as an out-of-the-box enterprise social network?
The rest of the post addresses two key questions:
- How social is SharePoint 2013 under the hood?
- Is SharePoint 2013 social enough?
