Content tab – where each user stores his content, such as document and spreadsheets, lists or subsites etc.

Tags and Notes tab – displays all tags and notes the user created.

Colleagues – all users keep a list of colleagues. A person;s colleagues can be added:
(1) automatically – such as direct reports and people who report to the same mamager; data is accurate only if the info in AD is correct (“Manager” property under “User” property)
(2) Suggestions – SP will suggest colleagues, based on emails, office communication server contacts, and web sites for which multiple individuals are included in the members group.
(3) manually – When viewing someone else’s profile, you can click “add a colleague” button to add the person as your colleague.

Why adding people as your colleague? (1) activities of your colleague will be displayed in your newsfeed (also known as “My Network” page), 92) you can share info with your colleagues.

When adding a colleague, some options:

If the client computer has MS Office, then user will be prompted to remember the y Site location. If click Yes, MS Office will have the Usr’s My Site as a Sharepoint location in which to save document.
