Share, Follow, and Sync: How SharePoint 2013 uses Personal MySites for Social functionality.

Prior to SharePoint 2013 many organizations built a MySite Host but never implemented personal MySite storage. This was a very viable strategy in 2010. But with the introduction of the Social features in SharePoint 2013 things have changed. In this talk we'll review all the new "Social" features in SharePoint 2013 that depend on personal MySites. We'll also look at how to control and manage personal MySites in your organization and discuss how future integration with Yammer may change this requirement.

 Community Time for Power Users



Starting this month and going forward, there will be a dedicated time for anyone attending the meeting to ask/answer questions related to any SharePoint feature. 


We, at the steering committe feel that there is enough knowledge among all of the attendees that we can help each other by sharing the knowledge.
Our goal is that this time will be use to introduce SharePoint features (tips/tricks), ask questions, answer questions, showcase a technique, etc. by the attendees.
