  • Uploading pictures
  • @mentioning a colleague using global address lookup
  • Including #hashtags in posts
  • Snaping the SharePoint Newsfeed app to the side and multitasking.

“The SharePoint Newsfeed app allows you to interact with your organisation's SharePoint social network while on the go,” said Mark Kashman, senior product manager on the SharePoint team at Microsoft in a blog post. “You can easily navigate your feeds and participate in conversations on your company feed or in the SharePoint sites you are following.”
