SharePoint and Peer-to-Peer Sharing Tools

In addition to hosting other important collaborative tools, SharePoint 2010 is the version of SharePoint that can especially encourage peer-to-peer sharing and other forms of employee engagement. By leveraging the strategies behind popular social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, newer features of SharePoint are designed to increase the prevalence of social sharing across an organization, fostering a critical sense of belonging and participation.

For example, a microblogging platform (similar to Twitter) within SharePoint allows employees to share their successes, experiences, and questions company-wide. In addition to allowing employees across offices to get to know one another in a much richer way, HR professionals or other business leaders can monitor the collection of employee updates for themes. If a certain situation or question continuously arises, it may be time to re-strategize.
