re: How To Make SharePoint More Social
There are many Intranets solutions on the market, however if you are looking for a solid SharePoint based Intranet solution, check out SharePoint Implementeds' product. I think it's the best solution out for the price.They seem to have put a lot of thought into usability and filling in gaps that you would not know exsist in sharepoint until you start your implementation.

They offer a turnkey solution which provides a custom Home Site, Department Sites and Project Sites, installation, configuration and training all under $5,000 and even have a source code option.

One thing that I would love to see that they dont have now is a hosted solution

You can get more details at http://sharepointimplemented.c...

re: How To Make SharePoint More Social
I strongly disagree with the opening statement that "SharePoint is the de facto standard enterprise collaboration platform". First off, bundling a product with everything else you sell does not make you a "de facto" anything. SharePoint is distinctly document-centric, George Orwell's 1984-esque Oceania is arguably more social.

The author clearly put some thought into the article, but I find the lack of reference to a true social collaboration platform - IBM Connections - a glaring omission. I'd recommend taking a look at a concrete comparison between SharePoint and social here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

re: How To Make SharePoint More Social
But SharePoint already exists in many organizations. Is it better to add social capabilities to an existing platform than to add a whole new platform?

SharePoint was never designed to be social. In contrast http://www.binfire.com was designed as project management and collaboration application based on social tools from grounds up. It is much easier to use and have great collaboration features built in the application.
