Composing documents, articles, adverts etc. can be done in Microsoft Word. Copying and pasting this textual content from Word in the past would have skewed or eliminated the formatting. The Rich Text Editor Web Part, now keeps Word formatting as is when uploaded.
The same content can be published in various locations without hassle, and even be altered to accommodate the specifics of such different locations. For Example, a summary version of an article can be published for android application display.
The drag and drop feature allows users to add documents, PDFs, etc to SharePoint through simply dropping files from your desktop into the document manager. This is especially usefull when multiple documents needs to be uploaded at once.
Videos can be easily uploaded and embedded in content libraries as well as streams. Again, similar to Facebook and YouTube, thumbnail images for listing videos are easily generated as a part of the embedding process, plus, you can choose the thumbnail image that you prefer.
Managing design elements
Following people, sites, documents, and/or #tags, allows users to stay up to date with their personal topics of interest. This custom information will appear in the form of a live feed. Like, Dislike, Reply and Comment buttons are added for convenience while they support and encourage interaction between users.
Through employing tools and features that turns authoring and usability into a breeze, SharePoint 2013 encourages content uploads, inspires the use of imagery and video content, and motivates interaction. This is what you want your Intranet to do for you!
