Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video View and post in your newsfeed, part of SharePoint Online Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] Social networking is embedded in SharePoint Online. If I want to work with a newsfeed, like I'd have on Facebook or on Twitter, if I'd like to be able to view in-depth profiles about people, if I want to be able to create my own profile and customize it, all of that is possible, and it's right here, only a click away. Every team site has a newsfeed in it, this microfeed that gives us information about posts on this site, but there's a larger newsfeed.
If I click the waffle and click Newsfeed, I'll be taken to my newsfeed, my own site, my own social networking. Here I can see that there is another conversation that's been happening about lodging. There's a conversation about a promotion and some replies back and forth. I haven't been part of this conversation at all, because I've been focused really on our San Francisco team site. At the bottom I have a note that Tammy Marley-Cox is now following me among other people, and that's good, I appreciate that because she and Victor are the other members of my project team.
It's helpful if everybody's using tools in the same ways. If I want to start a conversation, I can click right here and post something. I have the ability to share with everyone, that's everyone, or to share with a specific site. Now, if I share with Team Landon SF, then this post will be placed in the newsfeed we just left a moment ago, but, I'm a member of the San Francisco Events Team and Team Landon New York City as well, I can post in any of those particular newsfeeds.
To post something back in Team Landon San Francisco then, just choose Share with Team Landon San Francisco. I have the ability to snag a picture if I wish, and I'm going to post an image of this montage that I've been working on, of which I am quite proud, by the way. If I want to mention someone by name, I begin by simply typing the @ symbol, and even if the person who I choose isn't part of Team Landon SF, they will still see this post, because I'm calling them out specifically.
I'd like to ask Tammy, what do you think about this montage? Would you like one for New York City Columbus Circle? And I can post that. I can include images. I can mention someone, calling them out here. What else can I do in a newsfeed? Well, imagine that you're using any other social networking tool you're familiar with.
I can like something. We have Tammy posting about the promotion. I can like this. I can reply as well. That's what Colleen did. I'm going to reply too. I'll be more excited when it feels like spring. This is a promotion, so I could do a hashtag for this, so it feels like spring has sprung. Notice that by putting a hashtag in front, I actually did a couple of things.
One is I've tagged this conversation. As other people do that as well, we'll get some trending tags. Someone can follow this particular tag that I created. Now, there's no list of tags that you can use. Some people write ridiculous and long tags. Some people think every tag should only by lowercase. The purpose of a tag is to provide a keyword, a key phrase, that describes a conversation. If Spring Has Sprung is the name of the promotion, then by including this tag, I can search for that tag later to find it.
If I like something and decide later I don't like it, I'm going to like this, I can now unlike that, that's the opposite of like. Remember, by using the @ sign, I can mention someone. One more thing about my newsfeed, it has verticals. I can see just the people I'm following. I can see everyone. I can see just times I was mentioned. This is painful. No one's mentioning me yet. I can see things that are activities, and I can see items that have been liked.
Now, if I like a comment in a newsfeed on a page, it will not show up here. The likes that are here are likes that were applied here in my newsfeed. I could share with everyone, it would be nice if someone mentioned me in our microblog in our newsfeed, but I won't go there yet. The newsfeed's very easy to use. This again, is my global newsfeed. When I go to a specific site, the newsfeed that I see there, typically on the home page, is specific to that site.
Here, those newsfeeds are aggregated.
