SharePoint might be popular, but it has never been especially social. That's something Microsoft hopes to change with SharePoint 2013, bolstered by the company's acquisition of Yammer. New social features include the requisite newsfeed of organizational activity (pictured), the introduction of Community Sites, and other changes intended to better foster sharing and collaboration. Get a detailed breakdown of SharePoint 2013's social features over at The BrainYard.

My clients are anxiously awaiting the release of SharePoint 2013 for Office 365. You've captured some of the key points they're interested in - particularly the enhanced mobile experience. Can't wait!

Information Week only had one important New Year's Resolution this year. '"No Slide Show Articles with out a prominent 'View-as-one-page' link." How's that working out for you so far?

re: 8 Key Changes In Microsoft SharePoint 2013
Ugh. I was excited to find this article from a publisher I like, about a subject I'm interested in.
I only made it to the third 'slide' and quit reading. This slide show format is horrible. I want to read an article, not look for what to click next. It's not even formatted reasonable, in that I have to click 'more' every time. I guess I'll go elsewhere to READ an article, not view a slideshow.
I would more welcome a flash intro to the article, if I could read it in one place. Heck, even some blinking text would be tolerable.
