In January of 2010 FINRA issued Regulatory Notice 10-06. The intention of this regulatory notice, as presented elsewhere on the FINRA web site, is to provide reporting guidelines for “communications to the public to social media sites”.
Heavily regulated financial businesses with an implementation of SharePoint 2010, or 2013 already in place, may want to explore a wider use of SharePoint’s newsfeeds as a method of streamlining their reporting activities on their compliance with this FINRA regulatory notice.
SharePoint-Videos offers SP13-313 SharePoint 2013: Managed Metadata, which includes video tutorials on tagging social content in SharePoint. The course is led by Chris McNulty, CTO of HiSoftware, who is a widely respected subject matter expert on Enterprise Content Management (ECM), and information security.
The first video tutorial in this course, which may be helpful for firms grappling with the above mentioned Regulatory Notice, and the Regulatory Notices from FINRA on related topics, which have been released since the publication date of this first one on social media content, is titled “Social and folksonomy concepts in SharePoint 2013”.
In this tutorial, Chris provides a definition of “Folksonomy”, along with a brief history of its usage with regard to SharePoint, as well as why the application of this concept can be useful for collecting metrics on “enterprise social” content in SharePoint and analyzing it for compliance reporting purposes.
Chris also presents some important points about Yammer as an alternative to SharePoint Newsfeeds worth considering, especially for organizations needing to develop an understanding of what can, and cannot be done with Yammer newsfeeds and SharePoint.
Finally, Chris provides a lot of information about tags. He describes interoperability between “Office Tags” and “enterprise social tags”. He also presents some of the changes in tags introduced with SharePoint 2013.
The second directly relevant tutorial in this set is “Keywords, hashtags and newsfeed demo”. This video includes a demonstration of how to implement processes. These processes can be used to automate steps in a compliance reporting process for social media content in a SharePoint computing environment.
