When we focus on Social in a Microsoft context, we are talking about SharePoint, Teams, Teamwork and Yammer. Social can be a private network that helps employees collaborate across departments, locations and even business apps, it can be your company’s private network, your Facebook and Twitter handle, however various other applications are used to help you and your  team stay on top of it all. With SharePoint and other Microsoft technologies, this is a broad subject which is constantly evolving.

Therefore, the Social category is broad too, many different subjects are touched upon and this section is full of handy tips, tricks and advise. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.

At the SharePoint Connect 2014 conference (#SPcon14) in Amsterdam this month, I gave a keynote presentation on the very difficult proposition of integrating social into an organization.

It is used in companies because it helps to achieve a desired goal that has nothing to do with the technology.

Hello there! I’d like to start a new series of posts where I want to highlight and demystify the benefits of introducing and extending enterprise social networks (ESN) in companies. There is a lot of material online about the social networks, with diverging and even contradictory findings. I would like to present a summary of the most important points that link social networks and business. I will not talk about a specific technology such as Beezy or Yammer or SharePoint, but about the underlying business value.
