In this chapter, you learned about the personalization and social networking features of SharePoint Server 2007. You also gained an understanding of taxonomy and the relevance of taxonomy in designing your information infrastructure. You were also presented with some considerations in applying taxonomy specifically to your SharePoint Server 2007 design and deployment.
The chapter also demonstrated how you can configure personalization features, such as colleagues and privacy controls, to enhance your knowledge management and people search. Audience targeting in SharePoint Server 2007 has been extended to include audience targeting on list items, and configuration has been demonstrated so that you can readily adapt audience targeting in your lists.
You also learned how you can leverage the SSP to centrally configure all your personalization features and extend those features to include publishing links to Office clients and target links to users' My Sites throughout your organization.
Knowledge Network for SharePoint Server 2007, a powerful tool to allow people to connect to repositories of information, has also been introduced. Knowledge Network is focused on enterprise social networking, which empowers users to collaborate more effectively, giving them a rich user interface with which to create, manage, and consume resources.
