Sharepoint 2013 goes social

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Here is a short presentation I used for a talk on Sharepoint 2013 and the social functionality it offers.


This talk was held at an internal event at Bouvet (my employer) in Stavanger, Norway.
Used for a talk about how the Newsfeed activities work and how it can be used to collaborate across common silos like departments and locations.

  1. The title should be SharePoint 2013 Social “goes to dogs”

    There are so many limitations in the on-prem version of SharePoint 2013 social that without a massive customization exercise (or a 3rd party product like newsgator) the product is totally useless (for example max 3 @ reference in a message).

    Microsoft stopped investing in the on-prem version and is only singing yammer tune.

    The reality is that the on-prem version of SharePoint 2013 is lame and is dead-on-arrival because of Yammer.

    1. While I do agree that there are obvious limitations in the social functions in Sharepoint 2013 I would not go so far as to say they are useless.
      People will have on-premises Sharepoint 2013 for years to come so we will have to try and make use of the functionality that’s there.
      Microsoft has a whitepaper describing one way of integrating Yammer with on-premises Sharepoint 2013 here
