For other kinds of collaboration, SharePoint 2010 is much weaker.
- Conversation-centric — quick, dynamic collaboration enabled by microblogging
- Community-centric — sustained, networked collaboration enabled by vibrant discussion forums and active membership
- Content-centric — asynchronous collaboration enabled by ranking, rating, and sharing content with others
- Expertise-centric — knowledge-based collaboration enabled by reputation and activity tracking as well as the ability to search on more than just documents
If you’re looking to enable one or more of these kinds of collaboration, you’ll need to go beyond SharePoint 2010
… it is a pretty good document collaboration tool, mind.
