Social Networks for Business through SharePoint Online Dedicated
Social networks and media sites are a great way to promote business (even bear business). For companies desirous of 5,000 or more user seats for SharePoint (not available if less than 5,000 seats unfortunately), SharePoint Online Dedicated offers cloud-hosted solutions that provide the same resources as SharePoint Server, but with 99.9% guaranteed uptime and Microsoft Cloud-powered servers.
But what tools can business use within SharePoint Online Dedicated? Simply put, almost anything a business imagination can create. One simple win is to integrate social networks with SharePoint to create a simplified central portal for communicating with the online community. It is also possible to create a search mechanism that integrates online business resources such as Linkedin and Spoke.com, which allow users to research company information.
Technorati for Business
You might receive an e-mail after many moons that will contain a claim code that looks something like this: Q5Q44D8UV7E2 -- which is all part of Technorati's "interesting" blog claim process.
They request a blog to contain a claim code to confirm blog ownership, but it is not done through the headers and footers. Instead, the claim code is included within the blog itself. While it is a slow and cumbersome process--almost as though the review involves hibernation of some sort--Technorati is a good bear blogger resource.
