Summary: Learn how to plan for social computing and collaboration in SharePoint 2013.

SharePoint Server 2013 implements features that make enterprise social computing and collaboration easier. Social networking tools such as My Sites and social content technologies such as blogs, wikis, and really simple syndication (RSS), are examples of social computing features. These features enable users to easily capture and share the knowledge and expertise that is needed to do their work. This sharing of information encourages collaboration, improves innovation, and targets relevant content to the people who have to see it. You can adapt content to each user while enabling administrators to set policies to protect privacy.

The social computing and collaboration features in SharePoint Server 2013 are built upon a database of properties that integrates information about people from many kinds of business applications and directory services.
