My Sites & Communities: System Architecture Deep-Dive in Office 365 & SharePoint 2013

SharePoint 2013 provides for four main community categories as follows: Communities of practice: Community for a group of people who share a unique skill, role or profession to share experiences, best practices and advice Communities of purpose: Community that exists to accomplish a specific goal, need, or mission Communities of interest: Community consisting of a group of people who share a common interest or passion for a topic or domain Communities for social interaction: Community consisting of a group of people who primarily interact for the sake of interaction and socializing to build new relationships based on a common characteristic, culture or geography commonality Within the four main community categories, there are also four main types of communities as follows: Private community: Available to only specified members Permissions allow for the site to only be shared with specific users or group There are no approval settings available Closed community: Everyone can view the content of the site, but only members who have approved requests for membership can contribute Permissions allow you to grant visitor permissions to everyone within the organization so that they can view the site and request to join The approval settings allow you to enable access requests on the site Open community with explicit join settings: Everyone can view the site and can automatically join to contribute to the site Permissions allow you to grant visitor permissions to everyone within the organization so that they can view the site and automatically join as a member The approval settings are set to auto-approval to allow users to automatically join the site Open community without explicit join: Everyone can contribute to the community Permissions allow you to share the site with everyone in the organization and grant member permissions so the new users can all contribute The approval settings do not provide for a join button so be visible and the auto-following for new members is not enabled There is a centralized community portal template that can be created as a central hub for showcasing the various communities within your organization to your user base
