Microsoft SharePoint Online is a collection of Web-based tools and technologies that help your organization store, share, and manage digital information. Built on Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013, this hosted service is ideal for working on projects, storing data and documents in a central location, and sharing information with others. The following Social features let people work together in ways that are most effective for them. How? By providing great collaboration tools that anyone can use to share ideas, find people and expertise, and location business information.

Blogs can enable an organization to quickly share information among employees, partners, or customers. People can add insight to a difficult subject area, provide inspiration and guidance, or explain a new guideline or procedure.

An online community is a virtual place where ideas are discussed and shared. It promotes open communication by fostering discussions among users who both share their expertise and learn from others. Learn more about creating a community.

The company feed is an organization’s public newsfeed. All posts appear to the company, including those created by people that users might not be following. Learn more about Company Feed.

A site feed, similar to a newsfeed, is a place on a team site to post information, and reply to other posts. Learn more about posting something to a small group of people.

A wiki is a site designed for groups of people to quickly capture and share ideas by creating simple pages and linking them together. Every team site is a wiki, but you can also add a separate wiki page library to a site, or create a large-scale Enterprise wiki as a separate site or site collection. Learn more about creating a wiki.
