SharePoint 2013 Social: Around the Web

In the last few months, we’ve spent a lot of time on this blog discussing social intranets, SharePoint social business concepts and solutions, and web content management in SharePoint 2013.
Given the interest in these topics, I thought I’d point our more SharePoint-admin-inclined readers to some similar content elsewhere that provides a fairly concise summary of the different features SharePoint 2013 uses to make these things possible.
Over at CMSwire, SharePoint MVP Jennifer Mason has written a nice summary of the WCM-related and Social features of SharePoint 2013 that make it such a desirable platform for social intranets.  This article is best for people with “power user” or greater understanding of SharePoint as a platform, as it tends to get fairly feature-specific.  If you know or care about things like Content Query Web Parts, how URLs are generated, and using managed metadata, it’s a good read.
From there– and assuming you’ve already consumed the considerable volume of our Perficient blogs already penned on the subject— I’d suggest moving on to TechNet for the official takes on What’s New in Social Computing and What’s New in Web Content Management.  Happy reading!
